Paramedics, coastguards and Bridlington’s lifeboat crew teamed up to help a passenger who suffered an injury while riding on the speedboats in the harbour.

The teams were called at around 3pm on Saturday, when a woman slipped and fell from her seat on to the floor of the boat.
She had suffered a back injury so the speedboat owners called for help, and the inshore lifeboat was launched. The emergency services worked together to move the casualty from the speedboat and into a waiting ambulance.
