Five people have been rescued by the Coastguard after a fishing vessel ran aground near Ardglass.

The vessel, which is registered in Cork, got into difficulty at around 5 o'clock this morning.

The Coastgaurd and local life-boat services made an attempt to refloat the vessel after the boat went onto the rocks but weather conditions failed their attempts.

All five crew were lifted by a coastguard helicopter and no one is believed to have been injured.
