Fishing Boat Gets Wedged On Rocks.

This is the moment a fishing boat, registered to Penzance, crashed onto rocks in Plymouth.

Coastguard rescuers and the Plymouth lifeboat were called, after the vessel got wedged at Mount Batten pier.

Pirate FM understands no-one was hurt and it managed to refloat at high tide.

Posting on Facebook, he said: “A Plymouth fishing boat, the Algrie, crashed in to Mount Batten Pier on Saturday night, getting stuck on the rocks.

“Plymouth RNLI life boat, HM Coastguard and the police attended on the pier but little could be done.

“Now stranded on the rocks – the only thing to do is wait for the tide to come back in.
