News and media from Fleetwood Lifeboat Station

Fleetwood RNLI in multiple call-outs
Whilst on the way back to port, the third call from HM Coastguard requested the lifeboats search for a dog that had been swept out by the tide. Both lifeboats searched the sea near Marine beach and had given up hope of finding her when the exhausted dog was spotted out near Wyre Light. It was quickly taken on board the all-weather lifeboat and returned to its grateful owner.
