A crew of two from the Gosport Lifeboat Station was called out to the harbour at 7.23pm, according to the Solent Coastguard.

Due to the tide level the boat became stuck and it was left there overnight. It will be retrieved today.

The coastguard said it was a ‘routine’ call-out but without the actions of the crew the man would have been ‘stranded’ there all night.
