Barrow-inshore-lifeboat-attends-broken-down-vessel

Byline: Volunteer crewmen from the RNLI’s Barrow station launched their inshore lifeboat for the second time today, Sunday 22nd June 2014, to attend a broken down vessel.
Page Content: The alarm was raised at 8-15pm tonight by the occupants of a small fishing boat in Walney Channel, north of Walney Bridge when the vessel suffered a sudden engine failure.

Liverpool Coastguard requested assistance for the vessel and the Barrow lifeboat ‘Vision of Tamworth’ was launched at 8-20pm with crew of Adam Cleasby and 2nd Coxswain Jonny Long.

The  casualty vessel was being pushed north towards Duddon Estuary by the tide which had just reached a high water of  7.8 metres and when the lifeboat arrived it was located near to Walney Meetings. The boat was quickly taken in tow by the lifeboat and put ashore safely at Ferry Pitching.

The lifeboat then returned to station, was washed off, refuelled and made ready for the next incident before being re-housed at 9-30pm.
