A fishing vessel has been rescued off Whitby harbour.

The boat, which had a fouled propeller, was spotted off the coast yesterday around 1pm.

When Whitby Coastguard Team attended the incident, the vessel was already being towed in by lifeboat crews.

Once the boat was berthed, coastguards checked on the welfare of the crew and gave appropriate advice before all teams were stood down.
