10 Oct 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 Constabulary, Weston-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.
