The son of a North Sea worker who suffered a heart attack offshore has praised medics after his father was airlifted to hospital yesterday.
Greg Law, an engineer living in Aberdeen, said last night that medical staff who airlifted his father Graeme from the Mariner platform in the east of Shetland “undoubtedly” saved his life.

The Shetland Coastguard confirmed today that man was medevaced before being transferred to Gilbert Bain Hospital in Lerwick.
He was subsequently transferred to Aberdeen Royal Infirmary last night.
