Berwick-upon-Tweed RNLI's lifeboat helps North East Ambulance Service
Berwick all-weather lifeboat was launched on 10 August at 2.32am.
The call was in response to help transport two paramedics from the Northumbria Ambulance Service to Holy Island.
They were met by Holy Island Coastguard, the casualty was then transported from the Island by the UK Coastguard Helicopter 199 to hospital.
This was a great multi-agency response with all teams working together.
