Lifeboat called to help broken down yacht
THE Harwich lifeboat went to help five people from a broken down yacht.
Thames Coastguard sent the crew to help the 37-foot vessel Cloud Nine which had broken down at the entrance to the River Ore, at 1.39pm on Saturday.
The alarm was raised after someone on board called the coastguard by mobile phone.
However once on scene those on the boat declined any help and made their own recovery arrangements.
