Donaghadee RNLI launched on Saturday to go to the aid of a 17ft powerboat with four men on board that had run out of fuel off the Copeland Islands. Belfast Coastguard had received a call from the men shortly after 5pm and requested the lifeboat to launch. The vessel was quickly found and 2nd Coxswain John Ashwood made the decision to tow the casualty back to Donaghadee harbour. They returned safely shortly after 5.45pm.
