Have your say

TWO people were rescued from their stricken yacht.

The coastguard was alerted after a single-masted sailing boat in Portsmouth Harbour got into trouble.

A lifeboat from Portsmouth RNLI went to help at about 9.15pm.

A coastguard spokesman said: ‘The yacht got caught in its mooring chain. They recovered the yacht tender and put it alongside so the people could get on shore.’
