Falmouth’s new Atlantic 85 Inshore Lifeboat was out on pre-commission training when at 19:30 Falmouth Coastguard requested they proceed to assist 4.5m speed boat which had broken down off Penarrow Point in the Carrick Roads.

The boat was taken in tow back to Loe Beach was it safely recovered at 20:07, allowing the Inshore Lifeboat to then then return to its station.

More details to follow shortly.
