Crew rescued from Dundee pilot boat after fire

Three people have been rescued in thick fog from a fire on a boat in the Firth of Tay near Buddon Point.

Emergency services were called at about 03:00 after a fire broke out on the Dundee Port pilot boat Lynx which was on its way to meet an incoming vessel.

The crew extinguished the blaze, but were unable to use their boat.

The RNLI said three people were transferred to a lifeboat. One man was taken to Dundee's Ninewell Hospital after suffering minor injuries.
