A 67 year old German woman was flown off a cruise ship 20 miles north of Scilly last night.

Falmouth Coastguard arranged for the RNAS Culdrose Helicopter to winch the woman off the Aida Blue just after 9pm. She was suffering from a suspected stroke and was flown to Treliske Hospital.

The ship continued on to Cobh in Ireland.
