Felixstowe: Boat rescued after drifting towards wind farm

A YACHT had to be escorted to safety today after it broke down and began drifting towards a wind farm.

The 26-foot Dutch vessel got into difficulties off the Suffolk coast shortly before 1pm.

It began drifting towards Gabbard wind farm requiring a work boat from the facility to intervene.

Then a boat from Harwich RNLI was scrambled to the scene, which escorted the yacht back to the north-east Essex port.
