Called to Cockenzie for a Vessel Disabled

People Assisted: 0

The volunteer crew was launched to reports of a sinking boat off Prestonpans. The casualty had been shouting for help as there was no radio on board and the Coastguard had received a number of 999 calls.

Whilst en-route to the area, the ILB was advised that a local boat had the casualty under tow. On arrival at Cockenzie, the lifeboat crew confirmed that the vessel was safely tied up.
