A fishing boat registered in Stornoway is currently being towed back to town after it began taking on water.

Crew of the 'Prevail' raised the alarm at around 3am this morning, 31 miles east of Montrose.

A helicopter from RAF Lossiemouth was tasked to the scene, as was the Montrose lifeboat, which now has the 'Prevail' under tow.

None of the four crew members on board were injured in the incident.
