Morecambe lifeboat crew respond to reports of people stranded

Morecambe’s RNLI responded to reports of people stranded on a lifeboat in the Heysham Channel.

They were alerted yesterday (April10), shortly after 2pm, and Morecambe RNLI volunteers were called to service to reports of a ship’s lifeboat drifting into the Heysham Channel with possible persons on board.

The inshore rescue lifeboat (ILB) launched with three volunteer crew members on board and headed to the area.

The ship’s lifeboat was located, the vessel was searched and no persons were found on board.

The ILB stayed with the ship’s lifeboat to enable incoming vessels to safely make passage into Heysham Harbour alongside the Heysham Pilot Boat.

The volunteer crew members returned to station at 3.45pm and prepared the craft for her next call to service.
