A yacht with two adults and a six-week-old baby on board ran out of fuel off the Essex coast last night.

The 29ft yacht Zorba ran out of fuel off Stone Point on the Naze at Walton at just before 7pm while on its way from Burnham to the Walton backwaters.

It was assisted by Walton RNLI who took fuel to the stricken yacht while it waited at anchor before accompanying the vessel to Titchmarsh Marina where it was met by Walton coastguard.
