Lifeboat aids yacht

A lifeboat crew towed ashore a 25 foot yacht after it broke down 12 miles off the East Anglian coast.

Two people were on board Baleeka when she suffered engine failure at around 8.45pm on Saturday night.

Thames Coastguard responded to a mayday call by launching Harwich’s all weather lifeboat, which towed the stricken yacht back to Shotley Marina.

It was met there by the Holbrook Coastguard.
