Two men have been rescued by lifeboat after their dinghy's engine failed in the Firth of Forth.

The Kinghorn lifeboat crew were alerted after receiving a mobile phone call from one of the men aboard the 10ft (3m) tender dinghy.

They were found east of the island of Inchkeith, near the main shipping channel, following a search.

The RNLI said the two men were cold but uninjured after the incident on Saturday afternoon.
