Salcombe RNLI launched to a fishing boat with engine failure.

Salcombe RNLI launched their all-weather lifeboat, The Baltic Exchange III, on Monday morning, to assist a 10m fishing vessel with engine failure.

The fishing boat was 1.5nm south west of Bolt Head. 

When the RNLI crew arrived on scene, it was confirmed that the boat had "no control over its movements" and was therefore taken under tow and brought back to the safety of Salcombe Harbour.
