Seahouses RNLI assist paddle boarders in distress at Budle bay
At 1:34pm on Saturday 11 June 2022, UK Coastguard requested the launch of Seahouses inshore lifeboat, to assist a group of paddleboarders, reported in difficulty north of Budle Bay.
The lifeboat launched and made best speed to the scene, but just prior to arriving, was stood down by the Coastguard and returned to station, as the paddleboarders were safely ashore.
