Reason: Person needing assistance
The lifeboat was launched following an ‘immediate launch tasking’ from
H M Coastguard as a person was in difficulties in the sea at Cresswell.
The lifeboat proceeded at full speed to the area known as Cresswell Scarrs, as it arrived on scene it was established the person was now ashore and being assisted by others.
As no other assistance was required from the RNLI, H M Coastguard released the lifeboat from the tasking and it returned to Newbiggin where it was washed down, refuelled and made ready for service.
Other Units: H M Coastguards
