11 May 2013 - Padstow Lifeboat launches to aid local fishing vessel

Padstow RNLI lifeboat Tamar class 'Spirit of Padstow' launched at 8pm tonight (Saturday 11th May) to go to the assistance of a local fishing vessel which had broken down with engine failure half a mile inside the Newland Island at the mouth of the Camel Estuary.

The fishing boat had managed to anchor and await the lifeboat. Once on scene the lifeboat took the vessel under tow into Padstow Harbour.
