Rescuers hold fundraiser for teenager

Rescue workers are holding a fundraising day in Eyemouth to raise money for Katie-Lou McLean.

The 14 year old was swept off the harbour wall and out to sea by huge waves in June.

Katie-Lou has been left with permanent brain damage and remains in hospital in Edinburgh.

Hundreds of people are expected to attend an emergency services day on Saturday afternoon. The event has been organised by Coastguard Norman Richardson, who gave CPR to Katie-Lou at the time of her accident.

He said the idea was to give all the people who were involved in the incident another chance to help.

Around £6000 has already been raised by locals for a trust set up by Katie's family to help them provide lifelong care.
