Bridlington lifeboat was paged this (20th July) morning after a local fishing boat had broken down very close to the harbour.
The 13 meter boat suffered what was thought to be a fuel problem which led to the Coastguard alerting the stations All Weather Lifeboat ‘ Antony Patrick Jones’.
The lifeboat towed the fishing boat into deeper water and stayed along side the vessel waiting for the tide to turn before taking the boat to safety in the harbour.
