Two adults and a child had to be rescued after their sailing dinghy capsized in a Western Isles loch this afternoon.
A Stornoway Coastguard spokeswoman said they received a 999 call from a member of the public on the shore to report the incident at East Loch Tarbert on Harris at about 3.30pm.
She said the caller reported that three people were on top of the upturned sailing dinghy.
However, it was not necessary to call out emergency services because the three were quickly rescued by the crew of a local boat.
The spokeswoman said no one was hurt in the incident.
