Rescue – Sunday 14 August 2016

The Redcar lifeboat was launched on Sunday 14 August 2016 after reports of a red flare off Redcar.


The lifeboat launched at 10.35pm and began an area search to the east of the Teesside Wind Farm.

Whilst the search was on-going, UK Coastguard officers ashore discovered a recently used Chinese lantern.

Subsequently the search, which also involved the Tees pilot cutter ‘Coatham’, was called off.
