The 8 meter long fishing vessel Phra Nang became disabled while fishing near Newquay, England. The Phra Nang’s propeller was fouled by a rope and the vessel began to drift ashore.

However, the rope couldn’t be pulled free so the lifeboat took the Phra Nang under tow back to Newquay. No reports of injuries, damage or pollution being released.
