HM Coastguard tasked LNR @ 17:35 to a 28ft fishing vessel with 2 persons on board. The vessel had lost power close to Ballyginnff and was swiftly located by our lifeboats.

Following a quick inspection a towline was connected to the casualty vessel and it was towed safely back to shore.

Lifeboats returned to base and made ready for the next tasking.
