Fishing boat sinks in harbour

Mon, 05 Aug 2013

Port Erin lifeboat helped to salvage equipment from a fishing boat which sank this morning.

The team were alerted by the coastguard just after 8am to reports of the vessel sinking in Port Erin harbour.

The lifeboat volunteers secured the surrounding boats to stop them sinking as well and recovered electrical and other equipment from the boat before it sank.

The crew of the fishing vessel had already made it safely back to shore.
