Five men have been rescued by the Portaferry lifeboat on Strangford Lough.

It's the second time the crew's been called out in the past 48hours.

Volunteers received a call after half 8 last night after the group on the yacht got in to difficulty just north of Don O'Neill island.

The lifeboat escorted the five men to calmer waters at Ringhaddy and the call out was over at quarter past 9.
