PSM lifeboat tows speedboat to safety

Vessel stuck on rocks after suffering engine problem

Port St Mary's all-weather and inshore lifeboats were called out after a 19-foot speedboat drifted onto the rocks at Langness.

'Just Chilling' encountered engine problems at around 2pm yesterday, leaving the vessel and the five people on board stranded at Dreswick Point.

The inshore lifeboat was able to establish a tow and take the speedboat to Castletown harbour just before 3pm.

All those onboard were safe and well following the ordeal.
