Sixteen Spanish fishermen were rescued 480 kilometres off the west coast of Ireland last Saturday they sent out a Mayday call when the engine room of their boat, the Centauro 1, flooded. Scottish coastguards responded to the alert and asked for support from an RAF Nimrod. Another fishing boat arrived on the scene first and took the crew to the port of Killebegs. They are all said to be in good health.
