A RIB had to be towed to Peel after running out of fuel whilst at sea.

The Manx registered Sea Eagle was travelling from Port Erin when it ran out of fuel near Glen Maye yesterday.

It had been due to make a fuel stop in Peel but the gauge was faulty.

Peel's lifeboat crew were called to the scene, and successfully towed the vessel into Peel.

The RIB had four passengers, who were cold but unharmed following the incident.
