The volunteer crew was called just after 21:00 last night after the Osprey broke down on the Scottish side of the Solway.

The crew's mechanic managed to get the Osprey's engine restarted, but it then stopped again, so the Dorothy May White towed the fishing boat and its crew of three 26 miles back to Whitehaven.

The lifeboat's crew signed off at 04:00 this morning.

Lifeboat assistance for training tall ship

A tall ship had to be rescued by lifeboat crews, after it suffered mechanical failure.

Hartlepool RNLI volunteers were called to assist colleagues from Whitby on Monday afternoon after the 120-ton sail training vessel reported it was in distress.

The 35m craft with 15 people on board was towed into Hartlepool docks.

Two of its crew suffered minor injuries, and they were transferred by the Hartlepool lifeboat to the Ferry Road lifeboat station where paramedics assessed their injuries before they were sent to hospital by ambulance.

It was good teamwork all around and an incident that the volunteer crew members train for on a frequent basis."
