An investigation is under way after an offshore worker was injured on a North Sea platform.
A helicopter was scrambled to the Montrose Alpha platform, which is owned by Talisman, yesterday at 7.20am after a worker was hurt in a non-work related incident.
The man, who was working for Stork who are service operators on the site, was flown to Aberdeen Royal Infirmary where he was given a full medical assessment then released.
A probe has now been launched.
A Stork spokeswoman said: “Stork can confirm a non-work related incident, involving an employee, occurred on the Montrose Alpha platform.
“Yesterday, all appropriate actions were immediately taken to evacuate the individual.
“The offshore worker was taken to Aberdeen Royal Infirmary for a full medical assessment and thereafter released to travel home.
“Stork is currently working closely with Talisman Sinopec Energy UK to conduct a full standard investigation.”
