Crew rescued from grounded vessel

The crew of a French fishing boat grounded off the west coast of Scotland was airlifted to safety in severe weather.

The 14 men were winched on board the Stornoway Coastguard helicopter in gale-force winds.

The vessel, the Jack Abry II, sent out a distress signal just before midnight, after hitting rocks on Rum.
