Watch the video of the RNLI rescuing a broken down fishing vessel




The RNLI at Blackpool received a call just before 8am on Sunday morning asking for immediate help from a broken down fishing boat.

Three men were fishing a mile from the shore when their outboard engine failed.

Lifeboat helmsman Colin Lowe said, “We launched in sub zero temperatures but quickly located the boat about a mile off the ‘Glitter Ball’ at South Shore. Their engine failed and they had no way of returning to shore”.

The lifeboat went alongside and towed the boat to Squires Gate.
