RNLI save fishermen

FOUR fishermen were rescued after their boat broke down two miles out at sea.

Hartlepool's RNLI lifeboat crew were called to the 32ft vessel that was stranded off Crimdon, near Hartlepool, just before noon yesterday.

A tow rope was attached between the boat and the all-weather lifeboat and it was pulled into Kafiga Landings, in Hartlepool's Victoria Harbour.

The drama was over by 1pm.
