Eight people have been rescued off the coast of Devon from a tug which is carrying 200 tonnes of diesel. It was damaged whilst travelling from Germany to Turkey last night. A salvage operation to prevent the boat from sinking and leaking the fuel onto the nearby tourist beaches is underway.
Christos 22 had pulled into the coastline in order to check a problem with the tow when it was hit and began taking on water rapidly. Torbay Life Boat and Exmouth Life Boat were the first to respond to a May Day call, rescuing six of the eight crew who were unhurt.
