Lifeboat Called To Escort Fishing Vessel

St Mary’s Lifeboat, RNLB The Whiteheads

St Mary’s lifeboat was called out at around 11.30pm last night.

The volunteers escorted a fishing vessel, which developed mechanical problems off Scilly, part of the way back to Newlyn.

RNLB The Whiteheads met the St Georges, which had four people on board, 1 mile north of St Martin’s and accompanied the boat to the traffic separation zone, where she was handed over to the Sennen Cove lifeboat.

Falmouth Coastguard say sea conditions were rough.
