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

The Sligo based coastguard helicopter was also tasked to the scene. However, the helicopter was not needed as the lifeboat crew managed to get a pump on board the troubled vessel and were able to pump out the water as they brought it to shore.

A spokesperson for the Lough Swilly Lifeboat said it was another successful mission for the Buncrana based team.
