Have your say

A LIFEBOAT was called out to help a speedboat that ran aground in the Solent.

The Portsmouth lifeboat and the Coastguard were called to assist the boat outside Langstone Harbour just after 8pm last night.

Nobody was hurt, however the Coastguard worked for more than three hours to retrieve the boat due to the muddy conditions.
