Lifeboat Called to Missing Person off Brean Down

Burnham-On-Sea RNLI received a call from Swansea Coastguard at 15:06 on Sunday May 16, 2004 to help in the search for a person reported to be missing at Brean Down.

Burnham's 'D-Class' lifeboat was launched shortly afterwards with a crew of three onboard (pictured), led by helmsman Nick Prout.

The crew headed to Brean Down and conducted a thorough search of the shoreline on both sides of the Down.

They also searched the River Axe estuary as far inland as the sailing club, and then repeated the search of the Down - but no-one was found. Police from Somerset Constabulary were also involved in the search.

Yacht helped to deeper waters

As the crew returned back to the slipway at Burnham, they spotted a yacht encountering difficulties just off Burnham Pier.

The yacht, called the Trio, had run aground and was helped back to deeper waters in Bridgwater Bay.
