An injured woman was rescued after her horse returned to its stable without her.

The unnamed rider, who is in her 30s, set off from Tahuna stables, just south of Newburgh on Tuesday night and had been riding along the Mains of Foveran coastline.

Lifeboats from Aberdeen were alerted just before 8pm on Tuesday evening after receiving reports of an injured female on the beach.

It is understood a local farmer raised the alarm when the horse returned to the stables without its rider.

On assessing the casualty, who had suffered rib and spinal bruising, the ambulance service and RNLI doctor decided to air lift the woman to Aberdeen Royal Infirmary.
