Staithes and Runswick RNLI volunteer crew successfully rescued a fishing boat in trouble today.

'Flora Jane', a Staithes-based double-ender fishing boat, was making its way back after repair in Whitby when it suffered an electrical fault off Sandsend and its skipper called for help.

Staithes inshore lifeboat ‘Pride of Leicester’ launched shortly after midday and successfully towed the boat home.
