Rescue – 14 November 2015

Both Redcar RNLI lifeboats were launched on the evening of Saturday 14 November 2015 after Cleveland Police requested assistance with the search for a man believed to have entered the sea.

The lifeboats were requested just before 8.30pm after a member of the public had called the police to say he believed he had seen a man walking into the sea a few hundred yards south of the lifeboat station.

A search was carried out at sea and along the shoreline until approximately 9.15pm when the police called off the search, having decided the call was a false alarm with good intent.
