Blackpool RNLI assist small inflatable boat
Blackpool RNLI volunteers were called out at 3.45pm on Sunday afternoon (23rd June 2019) when a small inflatable boat, with two people onboard, suffered engine failure near Anchorsholme. The Atlantic 85 lifeboat launched quickly and headed to the scene. One person had started to swim ashore and was being helped by a kayaker who was in the area. The lifeboat then took the boat and both people to shore before handing over to HM Coastguard.
