Stuck boat towed back

Have your say

A SAILOR had to be rescued after his boat suffered engine failure.

Volunteers from Sunderland RNLI were called into action just after 1pm yesterday when the man, from Fulwell, got into difficulties half a mile east of Sunderland Harbour.

The coastguard received an emergency radio call saying that his boat was drifting without power and towed the stricken vessel back to shore.
