News Release 033/2019

FEMALE CUT OFF BY TIDE ON SAND BANK AT BUDLE BAY


At 13:52 hrs on Saturday 14 September 2019 UK Coastguard requested the launch of Seahouses ILB to the report of a female believed to be about 70 years of age, trapped on a sand bank in Budle Bay.

At 14:00 hrs the ILB launched on service and made best speed to the location. On arrival it was learned that the casualty had been collected by a Kite surfer and taken ashore. The casualty then left in her own car. The Seahouses RNLI Landrover took up a position on the high ground to act as a relay point as radio comms in the area are notoriously difficult. The Seahouses RNLI Landrover was tasked by the Coastguard to check nearby car parks on their way back to Seahouses.
