Volunteer crew members from Eyemouth RNLI assisted a fishing boat taking on water in the harbour.

They responded to reports of a trawler sitting very low in the water at 7.45am on Saturday.

On arrival, the crew found the hold and engine room full of water. They worked with Eyemouth Fire and Rescue Service to pump out the water.

The leak was then located and the vessel made safe.
