A YACHT with a tangled anchor was freed by Sandown and Shanklin Independent Lifeboat this morning (Sunday).

The lifeboat was called to assist the French yacht Neptune, off the Isle of Wight coast, after the anchor became wrapped around a line of lobster pots.

The crew shared these pictures on Facebook and posted: "With a bit of a language barrier and the wrong position given we eventually found her and got her free and on her way to Portsmouth."
