Two fishermen feared lost at sea off the Aberdeenshire coast have been rescued after 48 hours.

Jim Reid, 75, and his grandson David Irvine, 35, from Inverbervie, were rescued by chance.

They were discovered in their creel boat about 46 miles off the coast of Montrose by another fishing vessel, the Sylvia Bowers DS8.

The men had survived on just a bottle of water and two biscuits. They described how they felt when they were rescued.
