Night launch for Staines Whitfield
RNLI were called to help in the search for two people reported
to be missing in the sea near the old Lighthouse.
Staines Whitfield was launched shortly after 22:15 on Saturday
August 7th after beach fisherman alerted coastguards to seeing
two youths in their mid-20s running into the sea then not being
heard for several minutes.
RNLI's Atlantic 75 lifeboat,
with three crew and a helm onboard, began a thorough search of
the shoreline and the missing pair were found shortly afterwards,
before being returned to the beach where they were taken to a
waiting ambulance at nearby Maddocks Slade.
