A north-east lifeboat crew battled “horrendous conditions” to help a boat in distress today.

Thanks to a fantastic throw from volunteer John May, the lifeboat was able to establish a line between the two ships, before towing it to the safety of Peterhead Harbour.
Coxswain Vic Sutherland praised the crew member’s actions under difficult conditions, saying “brilliant, John got it across the first time. That was the pressure off”.
