Dunbar lifeboat was paged today at 17:20 to reports of an inflatable half a mile north of Thorntonloch with 2 persons on-board. Dunbar’s ALB was launched as it was understood the inflatable was being blown off shore.Once the ALB had launched Dunbar’s Coast guard team had made a visual and gave instructions of the directions where the inflatable was situated.  By this time the 2 persons on-board the inflatable had made it ashore where the coast guard team helped them and alerted the ALB to stand down.

The ALB then returned to Torness where it was refuelled and made ready for service.
