ALB Shouts


At 4.15pm this afternoon the Penlee all-weather lifeboat ‘Ivan Ellen’ and her volunteer crew launched on service after receiving a tasking request from the Falmouth Coastguard Operations Centre.A 10-metre fishing vessel with two persons onboard had suffered engine failure 9 miles SSE of Newlyn. As the lifeboat proceeded to the scene the experienced skipper reported that the engine was running again but on low revs so the ‘Ivan Ellen’ escorted the vessel back to Newlyn – both boats arrived safely at 6.00pm
