The coastguard flew an injured wind farm worker to hospital after being called out by the RNLI Shoreham all-weather lifeboat.

The lifeboat crew were out on a training exercise when they were diverted to a platform being used to install the Rampion wind farm last night (Wednesday 8 February).

The worker was on the MPI Discovery, a wind turbine installation vessel, about 12 miles south west of Brighton and Hove, when he was injured and needed hospital treatment.
