Four people have been rescued from Lough Foyle in Co Donegal after their boat overturned.

A rescue was co-ordinated by the Maritime Rescue Sub Centre in Malin Head and the Belfast Coastguard this afternoon.

The alert was raised when a personal locator beacon was activated after the 30-foot vessel overturned.

Those on board were located and safely taken from the scene by the Greencastle Coast Guard unit and transferred to hospital as a precaution by the Sligo-based search and rescue helicopter R118.

The Portrush Lifeboat was also involved in the search alongside other local craft.

The four people on board the boat were reported to be “in good spirits” after their ordeal.
