The crew were alerted to the drifting vessel and promptly attended to ensure the safety of the vessel and others in the harbour.

A post on the Whitby RNLI Lifeboat Facebook on Saturday November 6 page read: "Whitby RNLI were tasked to secure a boat within the harbour which had broken free from its moorings on the pontoon, causing a potential hazard to other vessels.

"The inshore lifeboat crew were launched and secured the boat using ropes and made contact with the owner."
