Fishermen rescued after boat's engine fails

Four fishermen were rescued by Burnham-On-Sea RNLI after their boat's engine failed in Bridgwater Bay.

The Staines Whitfield was launched at lunchtime on Monday August 2nd after Coastguards called on them to assist the boat.

The Coastguard Rescue Team was waiting on Burnham's jetty to meet the craft, which had suffered problems with its gears. It was towed in by the lifeboat.

The four fishermen were returned safely to the shore at about 13:00 hours.
