Boat adrift

FLAMBOROUGH lifeboat was called out to rescue a fishing boat in trouble about half a mile off South Landing.

The crew launched the Elizabeth Jane Palmer at 5.45pm last Thursday after a report the 23ft angling boat with four people on board had a rope tangled around the propeller leaving it without power.

The lifeboat crew was able to get a line to the fishing boat which they towed back to Bridlington harbour before returning to the lifeboat station at South Landing.
