A fisherman has been rescued after he fell overboard.

The 'Aztec' was 15-miles south of Douglas when it made an emergency call to Holyhead Coastguard just after 11pm last night.

A mayday relay was then put out which saw both Douglas and Port St Mary lifeboats join the rescue effort.

The man was rescued by crew members in the fishing vessel, who then requested further help.

A Sea King helicopter winched the man from the boat and took him to Noble's Hospital for treatment.
