RNLI New Brighton crew members were tasked with a busy day on Thursday (June 6) after they received three call outs in one day.

At 8am volunteers were called to reports of a man, a woman and two dogs who were cut off by the tide and struggling to make it back to shore.

They were all rescued safely and the crew of the Atlantic 85, inshore lifeboat returned to station to wash down and prepare for service.

At 8.50pm the same evening, the Coastguard tasked crew members to reports of a person stuck in mud.

Volunteers proceeded to the slipway to prepare to launch and assist.

The incident was resolved just prior to launch, and New Brighton RNLI was able to return to station.

Later that evening at 11.30pm, crew members were called again to reports  of a person stuck in the water.

The crew launched from New Brighton beach and carried out shoreline searched between Fort Perch Rock and Woodside Ferry Terminal. The casualty was eventually located safely, and all units stood down to return to base.

Adam Bidston, helm at New Brighton RNLI, said: “This was a busy day for our volunteer crew, who showed incredible commitment to continue responding so efficiently and effectively.

“The varied nature of these shouts really highlights the dangers around the coastline. If you’re heading out to enjoy the water this summer, please wear a lifejacket and carry a means of communication.

“Tidal cut offs are a big concern for New Brighton’s lifeboat, particularly around the Leasowe Bay and New Brighton beach areas.

"If you are out walking on the coast, always check tide times and be aware that, if the tide is coming in, it may be coming in behind you.”

If you see anybody in distress on the water, call 999 and ask for the Coastguard.
