Alderney lifeboat rescues motor boat in English Channel

Alderney's relief Trent class lifeboat came to the aid of a motor boat broken down in the busy westbound shipping lane of the English Channel.

Launched just after midday the lifeboat was on scene in 80 minutes and towed the vessel to Braye Harbour by 1600.

Three people were on board the 42ft Miss Molly, which had broken down 26 miles north-west of Alderney.

The relief lifeboat is on station while the Roy Barker I is in for its annual service in Ireland.
