The ALB also took St Davids Coastguard team with them to the island, where they were met by Greg and Lisa wardens of Ramsey Island, who assisted with transporting the equipment to the location of the casualty.

The casualty was then carried by stretcher over a mile back to the harbour, where she was transferred on to the lifeboats, and taken back to St Justinians, before being taken to hospital.

A great effort by multi agencies working together.
