Furness Coastguard called out to yacht that had run aground


Furness Coastguard were paged this afternoon at 13:05 after reports of a yacht aground with persons onboard on Foulney island.

A spokesperson from the Coastguard said:

"The team proceeded to scene and assistance was requested from Barrow Lifeboat who launched both their Inshore Lifeboat and All Weather Lifeboat.

"The lifeboat took the vessel under tow and ascertained that there were no injuries to the yacht crew along with towing the vessel to a secure mooring. 

"There are strong winds forecast over the next couple of days in addition to Spring tides (highest tides of the month) so there is a high risk of localised flooding along the coastal areas. We urge everyone to think of their safety and ours and not to get to close to the sea just to get a picture which we observed a number of people doing today.

"If in danger around the coast or you think someone else is dial #999 and ask for the Coastguard."
