Scarborough RNLI rescues man in harbour
Scarborough RNLI was called out this morning (Saturday 22 June) when a man fell off his boat into the outer harbour and couldn't get out of the water.
The inshore lifeboat was launched and the Coastguard was also tasked and the man was rescued.
The volunteer crew of three took him to the lifeboat house, where an ambulance was waiting.
