Two rescued from sinking fishing trawler off South coast

Two fishermen have been rescued from their sinking boat off the Hampshire coast.

Portsmouth's RNLI lifeboat was launched after a Mayday signal from the trawler, a mile-and-a-half off Langstone Harbour, was received.

The boat sank seconds after the second fisherman was rescued.
