Three crews came to their aid after they blacked out.

A person was rescued by coastguard after they hit their head and blacked out on board a boat off the Weymouth coast.

The vessel, which also had two dogs on board, then ran aground close to the Rodwell Trail near Whitehead Drive in the early hours of Saturday morning.

Coastguard from Wyke, Weymouth, and Portland, and South West Ambulance Service attended the scene.

Heavy seas battered the vessel making the rescue particularly difficult.

The casualty and dogs were eventually evacuated off the boat safely and taken ashore.
