Sheringham Lifeboat

Sunday 7th September 2014

At 21.17 hrs at the request of Humber Coastguard the Sheringham Lifeboat was launched to assist in the search for a possible missing person. The Lifeboat was working as part of a coordinated search with other emergency services.

The Lifeboat crew were tasked to proceed to Weybourne and then return doing a thorough search of the inshore waters and foreshore back in an easterly direction as far as West Runton.

The Lifeboat completed an inshore water search from Weybourne through to beyond East Runton and then returned to Sheringham also doing a further inshore waters search before being stood down at 23.00 hrs.

The missing person was thankfully found safe and well, inland and about 5 miles from Sheringham.

Good service professionally undertaken.

We regret to advise our friends, followers and supporters that until further notice Sheringham Lifeboat Station and both shops will be closed to visitors as will all the Royal National Lifeboat Institution (RNLI) lifeboat stations, shops, museums and visitor centres. Besides protecting the wellbeing of our volunteers, our staff and our visitors this will enable us to preserve and continue with our lifesaving service. In addition, we will be cancelling all indoor and outdoor RNLI fundraising and other events including visits to schools. We will keep you informed via our website and social media accounts of any developments and will also provide updates on any lifesaving launches. Your support for the RNLI is much appreciated and we hope that you will understand why we have made these difficult decisions.
