Person In The Water – Wednesday 23rd August 2017

Crew Paged: 15:48pm

Solent Coastguard requested Portsmouth’s D Class (Brian’s Pride) to launch to reports of a person in the water up by the Eastern Road Bridge. The crew launched within a couple of minutes of the pager going off as there were already crew on station. The D Class made best speed up to the Eastern Road and commenced searching of the local area to where the first informant said they had seen them. After approximately 30 minutes of searching information was received that meant the D Class could stand down to return to station.
