Broken down motorboat towed to Jersey

Three people in a motorboat have been towed to Jersey after it broke down off the north coast on Friday night.

The St Catherine's lifeboat was launched and was on the scene in 10 minutes. It towed the motorboat to Bonne Nuit harbour.

The crew on the boat off Sorel Point had one lifejacket, a mobile phone and no radio between them, the RNLI said.

The RNLI said boat owners should take advantage of the free sea safety checks it offered.
