THE SELSEY lifeboat crew was called to help an angling boat with engine failure yesterday (April 29).

The RNLI volunteer lifeboat went to help the eight-metre charter angling boat True Grit, which had six people on board.

The engine had failed to start and the boat was anchored 2.5 miles south of Selsey Bill.

The Tyne class lifeboat Voluntary Worker launched at 2.43pm on Tuesday and began towing the stricken vessel to Chichester Harbour.

The lifeboat met another boat at 4.20pm half a mile west of the harbour and the tow was exchanged.

The angling boat was towed back to Cowes, on the Isle of Wight, where it came from.

The Selsey lifeboat returned to the station and was refuelled and ready for service again by 5.45pm.
