Two men rescued in Wellington Harbour

Two men have been rescued from a six-metre boat that began sinking in Wellington Harbour.

The boat was caught in a swell and started taking on water early this afternoon.

The two men were rescued by a passing boat, police say.

They did not have life jackets or communications equipment and it's believed the bilge pump on their boat was not working.

Wellington Coastguard recovered their boat.
