Falmouth Inshore Lifeboat was launched at 15:08 to assist a 10m Yacht with two people on board which had reported suffering a minor electrical fire while 1 mile South of Porthmellin Head. The fire had been extinguished and the electrics isolated so the Inshore Lifeboat was requested to confirm the safety of the vessel and its occupants and to assist them into the Harbour.

The yacht was escorted into the harbour where it was taken in tow and safely placed on the pontoon at Port Pendennis Marina at 16:30.

More details to follow shortly.
