Three people were rescued after their boat broke down at the entrance to Hartlepool Marina.

Hartlepool RNLI Inshore and its volunteer crew were launched and were alongside the casualty within a few minutes where the vessel was taken under tow to a berth in the marina.

The call out was made at 7.05pm on Saturday and the crew had returned to station by 7.50pm that evening.
