FALMOUTH’S inshore lifeboat was launched at lunchtime on Sunday to help a sailing dinghy that had got into trouble.

The lifeboat was launched at 12.06pm to assist the dinghy that had got into some difficulty in the harbour. 

It reached the small boat, which was being assisted by a passing yacht, as it was being blown towards the docks.

The lifeboat towed the dingy and its occupants away and back up to Loe Beach up the Fal.
