Volunteers from an East Yorkshire lifeboat station have rescued a couple from Pontefract after their yacht sank this afternoon.
Humber Rescue crew members were called to reports of a vessel which had struck the Whitton Lightfloat in the River Humber. The 26 foot yacht was said to be damaged, sinking with 2 people on board.
A rescue boat was launched and teams were on scene within a couple of minutes only to find the yacht sunk and no sign of the two people.
But the couple were found clinging to the light float, in shock but safe and well. They say their boat sank within seconds.
