RIB towed in

A LARGE rigid inflatable boat was towed into Lerwick harbour after issuing an alarm about a possible fire on board.

The 8.4 metre Ayda-Ruby with three people on board was at the harbour’s southern entrance around 10.30am when it issued a pan-pan alert.

Shetland coastguard picked up the call, and both the Lerwick lifeboat and the harbour tug Kebister raced to the scene and the lifeboat towed her to the quayside.

No one was hurt in the incident, and it is not clear whether a fire had started on the vessel or not.
