Two fishermen have been rescued after their fishing boat started taking on water in the North Sea.

A Coastguard helicopter and Fraserburgh lifeboat were called out to assist the Fraserburgh-registered Welfare, about four miles out to sea.

The Maritime and Coastguard Agency (MCA) said other nearby vessels had also responded to the incident which was reported at about 10:10.

The Welfare was being towed back to shore.
