On December 8, the 10 meter long fishing vessel Olivia Rose became disabled off Whitby, England. The vessel had suffered a mechanical breakdown and the crew requested assistance. The Coast Guard received the call and requested the RNLI Whitby lifeboat to be launched. The lifeboat arrived on scene a short time later and was able to attach a towline to the Olivia Rose. The vessels proceeded safely back to Whitby harbour. No reports of injuries, damage or pollution released.
