Three people were rescued on Sunday after becoming stranded when their boat broke down.

Peel RNLI was launched at 10.30pm after a request from Belfast Coastguard. 

They were found on their 18 metre cruiser four miles north west of Peel. 

The boat had suffered total electrical failure. 

It was towed back to Peel Harbour and secured by 12.05am. 

Press Officer Marc Vincent says: "As we continue to enjoy the nice weather we would like to remind everyone of the importance of preparing fully before taking to sea.

"We would like to remind water users to always carry a means of calling for help and wearing appropriate floatation devices.

"Should something go wrong dial 999 or 112 and ask for the Coastguard."
