Seahouses inshore lifeboat launched to assist Coastguards and Fire Service
At 2.36pm on Thursday 22 June 2023, Seahouses inshore lifeboat was called to stand by at the mud flats between Fenham and Holy Island.
'The tide also rises quite quickly across the mud flats here. If you are walking in this area, seek local advice and have a means of calling for help. Fortunately, today had a good outcome.'
