A stricken motor boat was rescued in the dark last night by the RNLI.

The Hastings all-weather lifeboat was called at 10.28pm last night to a report of a boat with machinery failure inshore at Bexhill.

The lifeboat connected a tow cable up to the boat and led it out to safety in deeper water.

It was then towed back to Sovereign Harbour in Eastbourne.

No injuries were reported.
