A FISHING boat was towed to safety early on Tuesday after suffering engine failure close to rocks at Berry Head.

The Torbay all-weather lifeboat was launched at 6.25am when the Rising Dawn reported engine failure a quarter of a mile off the headland.

Several other vessels also responded, and the fishing boat Two Brothers towed the Rising Dawn clear of the rocks.

The lifeboat towed the Rising Dawn back into Brixham Harbour.
