Hovercraft Weston

BARB CALL-OUT #47: October 10th

Our hovercraft crews were called to Weston-super-Mare beach at 12:30pm by Coastguards to search for a vulnerable missing person.

There was concern for the welfare of the person, who had been seen in beach mud, so an extensive search took place alongside Avon and Somerset ConstabularyWeston-Super-Mare Coastguard Rescue Team and Clevedon Coastguard Rescue Team.

The person was eventually found safely and a separate person was flown to safety from the mud on board one of our hovercraft. We were relieved that the incident had a positive ending.
