Three fishermen saved off Sunderland, North East England, in dramatic rescue September 22,2020   |  Source: Press Association

Video has been released of the dramatic lifeboat rescue of three fishermen who were clinging to their capsized vessel.

Several members of the public raised the alarm when they saw the men, who were trying to haul a lobster line back on board, hanging on to their upturned boat, close to Roker Pier, Sunderland, North East England, on Saturday.

The Coastguard requested RNLI lifeboats be launched and crews from Tynemouth and Sunderland were called out.

Within 10 minutes, the Sunderland volunteers were in the water and arrived at the scene, where they grabbed the drowning fishermen and pulled them to safety.
