Family cut off by the tide on Scolt Head Island – 17 August 2016

At 3.30pm Humber Coastguard requested the launch of the Hunstanton Lifeboat in response to a report of persons cut off by the tide at Brancaster. Hunstanton RNLI volunteer crew launched on service and made good speed to Brancaster. A family of six, two adult women and four children the youngest being two years old, were being cared for by the warden on Scolt Head Island. The children were showing signs of getting cold in the Easterly breeze.

Hunstanton lifeboat “Spirit of West Norfolk” took the family on board and landed them on the beach at Brancaster into the care of Wells coastguard response team. Our lifeboat then returned to station

H.W. 6.57pm. Wind E 4 Sea state slight Vis. Good
