Sunday evening saw the William Blannin launched to come to aid of a fishing vessel in difficulty, as a Buckie RNLI spokesman explained.

"Buckie's lifeboat launched at 8.57pm on Sunday, September 6 after reports of a fishing vessel which had apparently issues with rudder control.

"A tow was established to the vessel, the Blue Sky, and she was taken back to Buckie Harbour.

"The William Blannin was back at her moorings at around 9.45pm after what was a straightforward operation."
