A French fishing vessel has run aground on the eastern side of the Lizard Peninsula.

Falmouth Coastguard was contacted by the vessel Scuderia just after 11 p.m. last night, Wednesday, August 28, reporting that it had run aground at Lankidden Cove, between Cadgwith and Coverack on the eastern side of the Lizard Peninsula.

The Porthoustock Coastguard Rescue Team (CRT) and the RNLI lifeboat from Lizard were sent to the scene. The lifeboat managed to attach a line to the Scuderia but with a falling tide it was not possible to refloat the vessel.

There are five crew members on board, but no reported injuries. Damage to the vessel is believed to be slight with no indication of water ingress into the boat. Porthoustock CRT is on scene again this morning.

Falmouth Coastguard is now liaising with the Maritime and Coastguard Agency’s Counter Pollution and Salvage branch, along with other agencies, to monitor the situation. Another attempt to refloat the vessel will be made at the next high water at 11:30 a.m. this morning.
