Seahouses Inshore Lifeboat
At 11:43pm on Monday 2 January 2023, UK Coastguard requested the launch of Seahouses inshore lifeboat to investigate a report of a car and occupants cut off while attempting to cross the causeway outside of the safe crossing times. The Coastguard Team from Holy Island was also mobilised.
Safe crossing times for Monday were from 1:20am until 9:40am and from 1:55pm until 9:55pm.

On arrival of the Coastguard Team, they were able to confirm the people were safe and dry on the Causeway bridge, and their car would be able to be moved as the tide receded. As they were in no danger, the inshore lifeboat was stood down and returned to station.
