Shortly before 9am today (January 19) Belfast Coastguard called on Workington RNLI, who set off to the boat, which was stuck in the area of the German Tunnel.

The John F Mortimer lifeboat helped to tow the boat to Whitehaven.

All those onboard were safe and well, with the vessel suffering a breakdown.
