Fishing boat washes up on Peterborough beach

EARLY morning beachgoers in Peterborough got a surprise today when they were greeted by a large fishing boat on the sand. 

It's believed the boat, which has Melbourne written on its stern, broke its mooring in Newfield Bay about 4am and washed up on the sand. 

The crew is safe and well and working to return the vessel to deeper water.
