On June 6, the 16 meter long fishing vessel Emma Louise became disabled off Newlyn Harbour, Cornwall. The crabber had developed a fault in its steering gear and was unable to maneuver. The vessel requested assistance with the RNLI lifeboat from Newyln responding. The lifeboat was quickly able to connect a towline to the Emma Louise and proceeded back to Newlyn. No reports of injuries, damage or pollution released.
