Scallop fishermen rescued after issuing Mayday call
Boat began taking on water four miles off Wick after onboard pump failed.
Two crewmen have been escorted to safety after their boat began taking on water.
The pair issued a Mayday call when their 12ft scalloper got into difficulty, four miles off Wick in the Highlands.
The alarm was raised just after 2pm on Monday when the onboard pump failed.
Wick lifeboat arrived at the scene within 15 minutes and handed over another pump which enabled the crewmen to bail out the water.
The scalloper then sailed back to Wick harbour escorted by the lifeboat.
