Ramsgate lifeboat has rescued a fishing boat this morning (July 4).

The crew were called out at 10.55am to a small local fishing boat with one man on board with engine trouble, one mile off Ramsgate.

Once alongside the casualty, two of the lifeboat crew went aboard to assist with lifting the anchor.

The lifeboat then passed a line and towed the boat into Ramsgate Harbour.
