Radio warning follows boat rescue

Devon coastguard has issued a warning to all vessels to carry VHF radio systems when they are out at sea. The message follows an incident in which four people were rescued from a 16ft (4.9m) cabin cruiser when her engine broke down late on Saturday night.

Royal Navy warship HMS Iron Duke helped the Plymouth inshore lifeboat in their search for the vessel before she was located near to the Eddystone rock and towed back to port.
