Eastbourne-lifeboat-rescues-anglers

Byline: Eastbourne RNLI’s inshore lifeboat went to the assistance of two anglers this morning when their 17ft boat suffered engine failure
Page Content: The two anglers had set out from harbour this morning with the intention of fishing near the Sovereign Light Tower. Unfortunately just two miles from harbour their boat’s engine suddenly stopped, leaving them helpless. They initially contacted the lock keeper at Sovereign Harbour who was unable to help so they deployed their anchor and then contacted Dover Coastguard. Eastbourne’s inshore lifeboat was launched and towed the vessel to the safety of the marina locks.
