A Portuguese fisherman has been airlifted to hospital, after suffering a head injury on board a boat off the Pembrokeshire coast.
The helicopter from RAF Chivenor was able to take the man to Morriston Hospital in Swansea, having earlier been forced to abandon rescue efforts due to rough seas and communication problems.
The wind was blowing at south easterly gale force 8 (39-46mph).
Royal Navy ship HMS Echo was nearby and helped in the operation, as did the Angle Lifeboat.
Due to the weather conditions, this was a challenging rescue for all involved.
It was made all the more difficult as those on board the fishing vessel couldn't speak English.
