A FRENCH fisherman was airlifted to hospital last night after suffering medical problems.
Two helicopters scrambled to the fishing vessel 200m South West of the Isles of Scilly at around 6pm.
It is believed the man suffered an epileptic fit.
A spokesperson for Falmouth Coastguard said due to the location of the vessel, it was a long operation, with both helicopters having to refuel on the Isles of Scilly.
