Rescue – Monday 20 July 2015

The Redcar RNLI lifeboat was launched on Monday 20 July 2015 after the three-man crew of a 23ft fishing boat sent out a call for help when their engine broke down approximately one and a half miles east of the South Gare lighthouse.

The lifeboat launched just before 5.30am and towed the disabled craft to Paddy’s Hole in the River Tees.
