FISHERMEN stranded in rough seas had to be rescued by Shoreham lifeboatmen.

The all-weather Shoreham RNLI lifeboat was called out to the broken down fishing boat at 10.35am yesterday.

The 49ft vessel with four people on board had suffered mechanical failure and was a mile and half south-west of Shoreham Harbour in rough seas and squally rain.

A tow line was set up by the lifeboat crew and the lifeboat took the boat back to Shoreham Harbour.
