A fishing vessel has sank after after catching fire earlier today.
Five crewmen sent out a mayday relay broadcast just before 1pm after flames emerged on board the Karinya vessel.
They were then rescued by the nearby fishing vessel Pleiades as the RNLI lifeboat was sent from Fraserburgh alongside the coastguard helicopter from Inverness.
The crew of the Fraserburgh vessel had to watch as the boat burned all day before sinking at around 9.04pm
A spokeswoman for the Maritine and Coastguard Agency said: “There is a chance that the vessel will sink during the course of the evening.”
