She broke free from tow lines en route to Workington

A fishing boat that broke free of tow lines 10 miles off the east of the Island had to be rescued by Ramsey lifeboat.

She was being towed from the Island to Workington when she broke free at around quarter to six yesterday morning.

Ramsey lifeboat found the boat drifting and unmanned an hour later and reattached a tow cable.

Workington lifeboat then took the boat home.
