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.
