WALTON coastguard team was sent to help two people on a marooned sailing yacht.

The yacht had become stranded after running aground near Mistley Quay.

The Walton team helped a Harwich lifeboat crew check on the two people onboard. They could not refloat the yacht and the owners decided to stay on the craft and refloat with the next high tide.

It happened at about 4pm on Tuesday.
