The Sheringham Lifeboat was launched on Tuesday 3rd September at 19.30 hrs at the request of Humber Coastguard to go to the assistance of a small rib with three persons on board thought to be in trouble approx ½ mile seaward of Beeston Hill. A member of the public was ‘sea gazing’ from Beeston Hill when they thought they saw three persons waving from the small rib and thought they were requesting help. With no other way to verify the situation Humber Coastguard requested the Lifeboat to launch and investigate.
The three people were found to be safe and well but were escorted back to shore by the lifeboat.
The Lifeboat was rehoused and ready for service at 20.15hrs
