Yacht fire rescue after Thailand lightning strike

Nine UK tourists have been rescued from a burning yacht after it was struck by lightning.

They were on board the 50ft (15m) chartered boat off the coast of Phuket in Thailand during a tropical storm.

The group, understood to be from Scotland, were helped by a passing fishing boat before the coastguard arrived.
