RESCUERS are on their way to recover a broken down boat off Southwold before a force nine gales hits the Suffolk coast.

Lowestoft Lifeboat was called just before noon to reports of a broken down motor vessel which had dropped anchor 16 miles south east.

A lifeboat crew are expected to reach the boat at 1.15pm to tow it back to shore before gale force winds move in.
