An RNLI lifeboat crew from Falmouth were called out at 11am after the coastguards were arerted by the crew on board the Rebecca Too.

The boat was off Newporth Beach, between Pennance Point and Maenporth Beach, where it had dropped anchor to prevent it drifting towards the shore.

The lifeboat crew went on board to try and restart the engine, but after a failed attempt the boat was towed back to Port Pendennis Marina
