EXMOUTH'S lifeboat crew on Saturday towed a vessel back to shore after coastguards received a report it had capsized, throwing three men overboard.

The inshore lifeboat (ILB) and all-weather lifeboats were launched to rescue the men.

The men were rescued by a passing fishing vessel ahead of the lifeboats' arrival.

The ILB volunteer crew recovered the boat and towed it to the beach above the high water mark.
