D-Class Lifeboat called to help speedboat near jetty

Burnham-On-Sea's D-Class lifeboat was called out by HM Coastguard to assist a disabled speedboat in Bridgwater Bay, approximately 600 yards from the town's jetty, on Thursday September 9.

Although the crew were paged at 17:13, and the boat launched immediately, the speedboat owner had managed to reach the shore under his own power by the time the D-Class reached the jetty.

The lifeboat crew stood down, returned to the boathouse, and the boat was made ready for any further call-outs by 17:31.

RNLI spokesman Mike Lang said: "The boat was launched extremely quickly, and was effectively out of the boat house for only around ten minutes."
