Seahouses lifeboat rescues one adult and four children from Holy Island Causeway
At 1.59pm on Friday 25 November 2022, UK Coastguard requested the launch of Seahouses inshore lifeboat, to assist an adult and four children trapped in a vehicle on Holy Island Causeway.
On arrival, the lifeboat took three of the casualties to the mainland, leaving a crewman with the remaining two. The lifeboat then returned to pick up the crewman and two other casualties. All five were handed into the care of Berwick Coastguard Rescue Team. None required medical assistance but were cold and damp. The lifeboat then returned to station.
