FOUR incidents kept the volunteers of the Gosport and Fareham Inshore Rescue Service (Gafirs) busy last Saturday.

The crew based at Stokes Bay, Gosport, had to tow a 20ft motorboat which had broken down in busy Portsmouth Harbour. A family of five, which included three children, were towed to Camber Dock. The second call involved two people seen in the water at Stokes Bay. Upon arrival, three minutes after they dispatched, the people were seen to be safely ashore.

The third call was to a 23ft cabin cruiser which had engine failure and the last call was two men blown ashore in their boat.
