An RAF helicopter has rescued a man who suffered a heart attack on a boat off the north Kent coast.
Crews were called after a charter angling vessel reported a passenger who had fallen ill near Tongue Sand Towers.
The RAF rescue helicopter and Margate RNLI all-weather lifeboat were sent to help.
Both teams gave first aid on board the Dawn Breaker at about 11am yesterday.
The man was flown to the William Harvey Hospital in Ashford for further treatment.
