The Brighton Lifeboat was launched at 12.45pm to a fishing boat with steering problems six miles south west of Brighton Marina.

A spokeswoman said: “The skipper on the boat was feeling unwell so we put a crew member on board while we towed the boat back to the marina.”

The boat was back at the marina by 3pm.
