Burry Port lifeboat crew rescues fishermen
VOLUNTEER lifeboat crews were launched to the aid of a broken down fishing boat on Saturday evening.
The team was called to rescue the Sarah Rae, which had two people on board and had developed engine problems.
Burry Port's Atlantic 75 took to the sea and quickly found the Sarah Rae about a quarter of a mile west of Burry Holms – beginning the tow back at around 7.40pm.
Lifeboatmen moored the casualty vessel onto the buoy at the entrance to Burry Port as they were unable to enter the marina, for it to be recovered on Sunday morning.

The lifeboat and the two people on board were back at the lifeboat station at 10pm.
Owner of the Sarah Rae, Brian Chambers, from Caerleon, Newport, praised the crew for their efforts.
He said: "The response of the boys was phenomenal, their professionalism second to none.
"The RNLI should be supported because it saves lives and takes some of the worry out of boating.
"Just knowing they are there adds a feeling of security."
