BANFF Primary School's playground was the unlikely landing place of a helicopter coming to the aid of an ill man yesterday.
The Scottish Charity Air Ambulance, based at Aberdeen, was returning from Orkney at 11.45am when it was called to reports of an unwell man on Addison Crescent in Banff.
After landing within school grounds at Banff Primary, the ambulance team was taken to the scene by police.
The patient was flown to Aberdeen Royal Infirmary, where the helicopter landed shortly after 1pm.
A police spokesperson said: "We were called around 11.45am yesterday to assist the air ambulance with landing at Banff Primary School so they could attend a medical incident at Addison Crescent in town."
