A kayaker has been rescued by a fishing boat after getting into difficulties off the north coast of the Isle of Man.
It happened on Sunday at about 14:20 (BST) near Port Lewaigue.
Ramsey lifeboat was launched shortly afterwards to intercept the fishing boat and bring the kayaker and his craft back to shore.
An RNLI spokesman said despite encountering difficult wind and tidal conditions, the kayaker was found to be safe after checks by the crew.
