The Lough Swilly Lifeboat was launched in the early hours of this morning after a fishing vessel began taking on water just off Dunree.

Both lifeboats were launched and the Sligo based coastguard helicopter was also tasked to the scene, but was not needed as the liferboat crew managed to get a pump on board the vessel which allowed the crew pump out the water while coming in to shore.

Lough Swilly Lifeboat Spokesperson Joe Joyce says it was another successful mission for the Buncrana based team.........
