The Walton lifeboat helped a yacht which became entangled in lobster pot lines yesterday.

The RNLI crew were called to assist the 38ft vessel Cwenegogo at 2.37pm.

Two people were on board the yacht at the time of the incident, which happened one mile south of the Cork Sands.

Lifeboat members freed the vessel before towing it to the Suffolk Yacht Harbour.
