Lifeboat tows fishing vessel to safety

Lifeboat crews from Ramsey towed a fishing vessel to safety after it broke down off the coast of the Island.

The lifeboat was launched on Sunday evening to help the fishing boat, which had broken down just off Maughold Head.

Because of the tidal conditions, the lifeboat had to tow the vessel to Douglas, arriving in the harbour just before midnight.

The lifeboat was back at the station more than four hours after being called out.
