A MAN required medical assistance after a fish hook got stuck in his finger.

A call was received on VHF radio from the boat Dawn Run in Chapman's Pool at around 1.44pm.

The Dawn Run had been approached for help by four people on board a speedboat, one of whom was the injured party.

It accompanied the speedboat to Kimmeridge where they were met by Kimmeridge Coastguard Rescue Officers.

One of the officers, who is a First Responder, treated the casualty and advised him to attend a hospital accident and emergency department.

Unless he was fishing for Great White sharks, I can't see that a fish hook stuck in a finger could warrant calling the coastguard. What a waste of resorces!
