Have your say

Solent Coastguard’s helicopter was called out to take an injured sailor to hospital.

The sailor had been playing sport on a ship 25 nautical miles off the coast of Portland, Dorset, when he dislocated both shoulders.

Another crew member managed to push one back into place but the sailor needed urgent medical attention for the other one.

The helicopter flew the sailor straight to Southampton General Hospital for treatment.
