Hoylake RNLI hovercraft assist UK Coastguard in search for distress beacon
Hoylake Hovercraft was tasked to assist UK Coastguard in a search for a distress beacon. The hovercraft searched the areas of the River Dee Estuary whilst the Coastguard units searched inland. Rescue 936 helicopter also assisted by triangulating the signal and was able to locate the source, coming from an old beacon that had been discarded and accidently activated. With the source identified and there being no risk to life, the hovercraft was stood down and returned to station.
