SEAHOUSES INSHORE LIFEBOAT CALLED TO ASSIST FEMALE WHO HAD ENTERED THE WATER OFF SEAHOUSES BEACH FULLY CLOTHED
At 16.48hr on Sunday 9th July 2017, UK Coastguard requested the immediate launch of Seahouses Inshore Lifeboat, to the report of a female entering the water fully clothed from Seahouses Beach.
The Inshore Lifeboat was quickly launched and on scene within minutes of the call, by which time the female had left the water and made her way back into the sand dunes. Local Coastguard Rescue Teams from Seahouses and local police officers also attended, but were unable to locate the female. After an extensive search, all personnel were stood down.
The Lifeboat then returned to station, and was washed down, refuelled and ready for service at 18.45hr.
