Seahouses lifeboat early morning call after medal presentation
On Friday evening (1 July), Seahouses lifeboat crew held an informal ceremony and social evening at the Lifeboat Station, where eligible members of the crew were presented with jubilee medals.
An ambulance from Belford, arrived as the crew were preparing to launch, and were taken aboard the lifeboat. The lifeboat then swiftly made the 18 minute passage to Holy island, where the local Coastguard Rescue Team met the lifeboat, and transported the ambulance crew to the casualty’s location.
