Shetland Coastguard has been called to airlift an injured crewman from a north-east oil platform.

Aberdeen Coastguard received the call from the Brent Delta platform 115 miles north-east of Lerwick, at about 7.40am.

It landed in Tingwall at 10.45am before the man was taken to Gilbert Bain Hospital.
