Humber RNLI have rescued a pensioner who collapsed on board a North Sea ferry. The 78-year-old was travelling to the Black Forest with her husband when she fell ill and sustained injuries to her face and possibly her neck on Saturday night.

The ferry crew decided she needed hospital treatment and called the lifeboat to evacuate her to Grimsby. She was taken ashore safely by the Humber RNLI and transferred to hospital.
