Diver trawled up by fishing boat
A man diving off the Dorset coast was airlifted to hospital after a fishing boat accidentally trawled him up.

The man, in his 40s, had been diving at a depth of 14m (46ft) when he was pulled up along with the fishing vessel's catch.

He started to suffer from the bends and the coastguard helicopter was sent to the boat, Shiraz, east of Portland.

The diver was taken to the specialist recompression chambers in Poole and later discharged.

Portland Coastguard said they were investigating the incident.
