LIFEBOAT crews rescued a distressed yacht which broke down in Burnham yesterday evening (Tues).
The RNLI and the Coastguard launched at about 7.30pm to help a yacht in the River Parrett.
The yacht’s crew were visitors to the area and their engine had cut out.
They requested assistance due to the rapidly diminishing light as night-time approached.
The yacht was towed to safety and no-one was injured.
