Shout 1 of 2: Reports of Someone Under South Parade Pier – Monday 10th July 2017

Crew Paged 02:08am

Early morning callout for our crew! The Atlantic 85 was requested to launch to reports of someone under South Parade Pier, The crew made best speed round to the pier and immediately commenced searching in and around the pier. The first informant was a member of staff on the pier and they managed to assist the Lifeboat Crew with the noises that they heard. While the crew were searching they first informant heard the same noise again when he pointed it out to the Lifeboat Crew it transpired that it was a loose scaffolding pole that was banging onto another part of the structure. When this information was transferred to the Coastguard it was decided that there was no one in the water so Solent Coastguard stood down the crew to return to their beds at 02:40am
