Two fishermen have been rescued after their boat got into difficulties off the coast of Ardglass in County Down.

Lifeboats from Portaferry and Newcastle and the Dublin coastguard helicopter saved them when their boat capsized.

The men were not injured but were taken to hospital for routine checks.

Liam Colhoun from the Coastguard said the men's lives were in danger and they were fortunate to have been rescued.
