Fareham firefighters were called to help with the rescue of a capsized tug.

The crew went to Fawley marine terminal last night after a small boat capsized.

Fire crews received the call at 8.47pm and initially one of the three-man crew was missing after the 13m tug, named Asterix, capsized.

All the crew members were eventually accounted for after a brief search and were treated at the scene.
