Bridlington’s all-weather lifeboat (ALB) was called out at 22:30 last night (26th October) following reports of a vessel having gearbox issues off the Hornsea Coast.

When the ALB arrived on the scene the converted barge was unable to move so the decision was taken to tow the vessel back to Bridlington.

The volunteer crew returned safely home around 05:00 after cleaning and storing the lifeboat.
