Suspected boat fire prompts call out to Cowes

Isle of Wight firefighters, Needles Coastguard Rescue, and a harbour patrol team responded to a suspected boat fire in Cowes earlier today (Friday).

Fire crews from Newport and Cowes have been on the Esplanade.

They used a thermal imaging camera to check the engine, at around 12:30pm.

A blown turbo is being blamed for the incident on the 14 metre boat called Volante.
