Firefighters responded to reports of a boat fire this evening after a dog walker spotted a small yacht was alight.
On arrival, fire crews found the yacht, which measured around 24 feet and was moored on the quayside, was almost completely on fire.
Firefighters worked hard to extinguish the fire by 8.52pm, but the boat's interior was destroyed.
An investigation into the cause of the fire will now take place.
