Ramsgate RNLI were called to a fishing boat in distress this morning (May 18).

The All Weather Boat was launched at 9.09am to a fishing vessel with engine failure five miles NE of Ramsgate.

Once on the scene the AWB crew passed a line and towed the casualty to safety into Ramsgate Harbour.

Ramsgate resident Mark Stanford caught the return of the vessels on camera.
