East Lothian lifeboat crew called out to rescue stricken boat near Dunbar harbour
and live on Freeview channel 276
The crews were paged by the UK Coastguard at 8.40am, after Dunbar vessel Andara II became stuck without power about a mile north of the harbour.
The D-class inshore lifeboat (ILB) launched only 10 minutes later, and arrived to the boat a few minutes later. However, they discovered that a buoy and a line had wrapped around the propeller.
The ILB crew managed to cut the line, and free the boat of the buoy.
The all-weather lifeboat (ALB) arrived to assist with a tow, however, the skipper of the Andara regained power and decided to continue fishing, so both lifeboats were stood down by the coastguard.
