A Spanish fishing vessel which caught fire off the Donegal coast yesterday is making its way to Killybegs port this morning.

The British registered trawler known as 'The Shark' is being helped by a tug boat.

Sixteen fishermen were on board at the time and nine of them were airlifted to safety while seven of them remain onboard.

It is not yet known what caused the fire which started in the galley area of the boat.

The vessel is expected to dock in Killybegs this afternoon.
