Padstow's RNLI lifeboat Spirit of Padstow was launched at 8.37pm to go to the assistance of the Newquay fishing vessel Tizzardlee-on! three miles West of Trevose. The vessel with four crew members on board had experienced an engine fire.
The fire had been put out by the time the lifeboat arrived on scene and the vessel was then towed into Padstow Harbour for repair. The crew of the fishing vessel were very grateful for the speedy response to their call.
