RNLI help damaged yacht
No-one was seriously injured, but two of the three crew members were seasick

A damaged yacht which was drifting towards a reef off the Jersey coast has been towed to safety.

Two lifeboats helped the French yacht which had a broken mast, no power and was heading towards Paternoster Reef.

The St Catherine's lifeboat secured a tow to the craft to stop it hitting the reef.

The RNLI was called to help the craft at about 20:10 BST on Wednesday. No-one was seriously injured. The yacht was then towed to St Helier.
