The Sun Shines and more incidents

Another day and another busy day for the volunteers of Swanage Coastguard yesterday.

The team were paged on the request of Dorset Police to assist in a search for a missing 4 year old at Knoll Beach.

On route the Police confirmed they had found the little girl at Middle Beach so the team were released.

However the team heard the RNLI ILB being tasked to a person in the water off Knoll Beach so continued to get an early view of what was occurring.

The small Orkney boat was spotted and the inshore lifeboat was directed on to the boat. there was concern for a person in the water but it appears they had been trying to sort an engine fault. The lifeboat towed the boat to Poole.

As that was happening the team were approached by a lady with a very distressed young child who appeared to have been stung. The team assisted along with National Trust Staff.

Now the news is the weather is changing and for Friday strong winds and rain ..... Check the forecast.
