Blackpool RNLI volunteers search for three people
Blackpool RNLI volunteers were called out at 3am on 20th December after the UK Coastguard received a 999 call reporting that three people were in the sea near North Pier.  Bystanders had thrown life rings to the casualties but were struggling to pull them to safety.  Both of Blackpool's D class lifebaots launched and searched the area around North Pier until local Coastguard units managed to confirm that all three casualties had been pulled from the sea.  The casualties were then taken to the lifeboat station to warm up before being handed over to Paramedics.
