Burnham lifeboat launched to investigate suspicious object

Burnham-On-Sea RNLI's D Class lifeboat was launched at 08:35 hours on Friday (April 22) after a suspicious object was seen in the water off Stert Island.

The lifeboat, with three crew onboard, were called out by the Coastguard to perform a search of the northern end of Bridgwater Bay.

They retrieved a large log of wood which, because it was deemed to be a possible danger to shipping, was brought back to shore and taken away for disposal by the Coastguard. The D Class lifeboat returned to the beach at 08:55 hours.

A similar launch occurred on February 25 when a log was retrived amid fears by local residents that it could have been a body.
