RNLI releases images of Stornoway fishing boat rescue
The RNLI has released images of a six-hour operation to rescue a fishing boat that got into difficulty off Montrose on Thursday.
The crew of the Stornoway-registered Prevail raised the alarm at about 03:00 when the vessel was about 31 miles east of Montrose.
Aberdeen Coastguard was alerted after the boat's emergency beacon was activated.
A helicopter from RAF Lossiemouth was initially called out.
The Montrose lifeboat towed the boat into Montrose harbour.
