Lifeboats paged at 21:07 by Belfast Coastguard to reports of a fishing vessel that had lost engine power and was drifting towards rocks near Ballyronan.

Lifeboats launched and made best speed whilst searching for the casualty vessel. A short time later our lifeboats located the vessel with 2 persons onboard.

Once on scene the crew confirmed all onboard were ok and a crew member boarded before a tow was commenced. The casulty vessel was safely returned to its Quay.

Lifeboats returned to base, washed, and refuelled ready for our next tasking.
