24 May #12 – MAN WALKING TO TIDELINE – 20/05/2021
Our team was called out at 9am today to Berrow beach after several walkers dialled 999 for the Coastguard amid concern for the welfare of a man who was seen wading across the mudflats in an attempt to reach the sea.
A BARB hovercraft was launched from Burnham, along with an RNLI lifeboat, to assist Burnham Coastguards on scene. The fully-clothed man, who was covered in mud, was led up the beach to safety by Coastguards. This was a good multi-agency incident with a successful outcome.
