Tuesday 30th June, a twelve meter Bridlington fishing vessel with a crew of three encountered problems yesterday when an hydraulic steering fault left them adrift almost 22 miles East of the Yorkshire coast.
Paged by the UK Coastguard the lifeboat crew went to their aid and passed a tow to the stricken boat around 3.20 pm and then commenced the tow back to Bridlington harbour.
Weather conditions were perfect with calm seas and little wind but due to the tide the boats were unable to get into the harbour until 9.47 pm.
Once the fishing boat was safely moored up the lifeboat returned to station closing down at 10.30 pm.
