First call out for new Seahouses Shannon class lifeboat
At 12:59 on Tuesday 25 May 2021, UK Coastguard requested the launch of Seahouses all-weather lifeboat, to assist a North East Ambulance Crew to reach a patient on Holy Island.
They were transported to Holy Island, where the local Coastguard Rescue Team transported them to the patient’s location. The patient was treated and did not require hospitalisation. The ambulance crew were then transported back to Seahouses and their ambulance vehicle.
