Dungeness lifeboat volunteers rescue stricken yacht off the coast

By Aidan Barlow

Lifeboat volunteers went to the aid of a yacht which was stricken by engine failure a mile off the coast of Dungeness.

The RNLI team aboard The Morrell from Dungeness received the call from Dover Coastguard and went out to find the 30 ft yacht at 11.40pm last night (Saturday, May 21).

There were five people aboard the vessel, and RNLI Coxswain Stuart Adams towed it back to Dover.
