Fishing boat towed back to Wells Harbour

The Wells-based fishing vessel Isabelle Kathleen had to be towed in after suffering engine trouble today.

The Wells inshore lifeboat was called out at about 12.40pm when the boat broke down at the harbour entrance.

The crew towed the vessel - which had been out fishing for crabs - back to the boathouse.

The harbour launch boat then took over and towed the Isabelle Kathleen to the harbour, where she underwent repairs.
