First shout of 2017 for Dunbar Lifeboats 18/04/17

Both Dunbar ALB and ILB lifeboats were tasked for the first time in 2017 last night (18/04/17).

Responding to a request at 8.52pm from the UK Coastguard that a person was suspected of entering the water near the town's East Beach, volunteer crews launched both the inshore and all weather lifeboats within five minutes.

However, just moments after launching, at 8.58pm both assets were stood down by the Coastguard, with police and ambulance crews on scene.
