Three lifeboat crews were called out to rescue jetksiers who crashed in the Thames Estuary late last night.

Both men were injured and needed hospital treatment - with ambulance paramedics called to Sheerness lifeboat station.

The Sheerness crew helped remove the casualties by stretcher to the waiting ambulances by 1.30am.

Ambulance crews confirmed they attended, and took a 26-year-old man to Medway Maritime Hospital with back and chest injuries - which were said to be serious, but not life-threatening.

The second man, a 29-year-old was taken to the same hospital with head injuries, which were also serious, but not as bad as the first man's.
