Whitby RNLI has rescued a broken down vessel.

Yesterday (Thursday 17th October) at 2.23pm, Whitby Coastguard Team were called by Humber Coastguard Operations Centre and tasked to attend Robin Hoods Bay where a vessel had broken down off North Cheek, which had engine failure.

Members of the Coastguard Team proceeded to Robin Hoods Bay and maintained visual observations of the vessel as requested.

Whitby RNLI lifeboat's All Weather Lifeboat was soon on scene and assessed the best course of action to take the vessel under tow to Whitby.

Coastguard Team members relocated to Whitby Harbour where they liaised with Harbour staff regards where the vessel was to be berthed.

Coastguards checked on the welfare of the crew and gave appropriate safety advice.

With no further assistance required, all units were stood down.

If you see anyone in difficulty on or near the coast dial 999 and ask for the Coastguard.
