    Default Fishing crew rescued after hitting another boat

    The crew of a Peterhead fishing boat has been safely escorted to Lerwick harbour after hitting another vessel.

    The alarm was raised at about 20:05 on Wednesday after the Rosemount, with five people on board, collided with another boat then began to take on water.

    Goods were being transferred between the two boats at the time.

    A Shetland Coastguard helicopter delivered a pump to the stricken vessel, which then returned to harbour.

    The Rosemount was escorted back by Lerwick lifeboat.

    The incident happened about 50 miles east of Lerwick.
