Three people have been rescued from a boat stranded off the coast of the Isle of Man.

Peel RNLI’s lifeboat was launched by Belfast Coastguard on Sunday evening to help three people stranded on a broken-down boat four miles North West of Peel.

The stranded cruiser had experienced total electrical failure. A towline was established between the stranded vessel and the lifeboat and was towed safely back to Peel Harbour and secured by 12.05am.
