Arranmore lifeboat launched to assist stranded vessel

Arranmore Lifeboat has been involved in an operation this morning after a boat got into difficulty a mile south of the island.

The diving support vessel lost power and as a result steering before making the distress call.

Arranmore lifeboat arrived at the scene, efforts are ongoing to restore power to the stranded boat - if that can't be achieved it will be towed to shore.
