Boats go to the rescue of person cut off by tide at Northumberland beauty spot
A team of rescuers and a mystery boat went to the aid of a person after they became stranded off the Northumberland coast.
Seahouses Lifeboat Station was alerted at 10.09am today, Saturday, May 8, when its inshore lifeboat was asked to launch.
However, a short time later, the volunteer crew received an update saying another boat had helped the person, who had been on the coast south of Lindisfarne.
A spokesperson for the team said: “"At 10.09am, UK Coastguard requested the launch of Seahouses Inshore Lifeboat to assist a person reported cut off at Blacklaw, south of Holy Island.
"This is a nature reserve beside Ross Links, north of Budle Bay.
“The Inshore Lifeboat launched and made best speed towards the incident, but just before arriving on scene, a further report was received from the Coastguard, that an unknown boat had recovered the person.
"The Inshore Lifeboat was stood down and returned to station."
