Latest launch information:5th February 2020
Swanage’s Inshore Lifeboat (ILB) was requested to launch this afternoon after the UK Coastguard received a ‘999’ call from a person stating that they were cut off by the tide at Old Harry Rocks. The lifeboat crew were paged and the ILB launched to assist. As the lifeboat approached the scene a radio message was received from the Coastguard saying that the person had been recovered safe and well by an RNLI Atlantic 85 class lifeboat that was training in the area. With this new information received the Swanage volunteers were stood down and returned to station.
