A former fishing boat was rescued by Lowestoft lifeboat today after it lost its steering.
The RNLI lifeboat Spirit of Lowestoft was called out at about 2.30pm to Swedish-built ex-fishing vessel MV Vagrkar.
The boat, which is now being used for leisure, had lost its steering and was drifting five miles north east of Lowestoft.
The 23-metre long vessel had four people on board.
The lifeboat successfully towed the stricken boat back to harbour, reaching Lowestoft at about 5.30pm.
