RNLI rescues fishermen after boat capsizes off Isle of Wight

Two fishermen have been rescued after their fishing boat capsized, plunging them into the sea off the Isle of Wight.

The pair managed to get into a life raft and fire distress flares after their 14m (46ft) boat filled with water and sank early on Tuesday morning.

RNLI video footage shows the moments when the Yarmouth lifeboat rescued the men and brought them ashore.

Both were suffering from mild hypothermia.
