    Pair rescued in accident at sea drama

    Pair rescued in accident at sea drama

    An accident at sea left two people having to be hauled to safety from their sinking boat.

    The pair were rescued by the crew of the Port of Grimsby pilot boarding vessel Venus just minutes before their motor cruiser sunk in the Humber estuary following a collision with a bigger boat.

    The Marine Accident Investigation Branch has been informed of the incident, which happened in foggy conditions just north of Grimsby.

    Following the accident those on board the Pegotty motor cruiser issued a mayday call, resulting in the RNLI’s Cleethorpes and Humber lifeboat crews being called out by the Maritime and Coastguard Agency.

    Boat sunk within 25 minutes

    The Cleethorpes lifeboat was launched within just six minutes of the request for help and arrived at the scene just after the Venus.

    Just 25 minutes after its mayday call the Pegotty had disappeared beneath the water.

    A spokesman for the RNLI said the two people rescued from the stricken motor cruiser had been taken to Grimsby docks aboard the Venus.

    They were checked for injuries but found to be in no need of medical attention, the spokesman added.
