Troubled yacht in Isle of Man lifeboat rescue

The Isle of Man lifeboat was called out to rescue two people on board a small yacht which got into trouble near the south coast of the island.

The inshore lifeboat was launched from Port St Mary Harbour at about 19:00 BST on Thursday.

During the rescue the craft, a laser dinghy, was towed to safety after losing a rudder in Bay ny Carrickey.

An RNLI spokesman said both members of the yacht's crew were found standing in shallow water and were unhurt.
