The independent and volunteer crew were tasked to launch by HM Coastguard at around 18:30 after a yacht hit a sandbank and began to list almost in direct line of sight from the lifeboat station.

The lifeboat crew have ensured the crew are safe, have assessed the vessel and have now returned to station.
