THREE fishermen were towed to shore after an engine failure this morning (SUN).

The Redcar RNLI were called out to rescue a small fishing boat about 1.5 miles north of Saltburn at 11.30am.

Three men,who had been fishing, were aboard the drifting boat and contacted the Coastguard.

The RNLI crew quickly found the 15ft boat and the fishermen, who were well away from shore, were not in immediate danger.
