Selsey Inshore Lifeboat Conducts Search After Clothes Found


The RNLI inshore Lifeboat launched at 8.27 p.m. on Saturday 4th November to conduct a shoreline search after the UK Coastguard received a report of clothes found at the Marine Beach, Selsey.

The 'D' class Lifeboat, 'Betty and Thomas Moore', with a crew of three volunteers, was requested to search close inshore from Selsey Bill to the Bunn Leisure complex to the west of Selsey. The Selsey Coastguard team were also tasked to search the beach. The weather on scene was wind north west force 3-4 sea state slight in clear skies with good visibility.

After a comprehensive search of the area with nothing found all the search units were released at 9.49 p.m. with the Lifeboat returning to station at 9.54 p.m. and rehousing straight away.

CREW: Colin Pullenger (Helmsman), Max Wiseman and Harry Emmence.
