RNLI New Brighton respond to report of overturned Kayak in water

13/01/2020

Volunteer crew from New Brighton Lifeboat station were deployed at 2:31pm on (12 January) by the UK Coastguard to a report of an overturned Kayak in the Otterspool area.


The deployment followed a call to emergency services reporting that persons may be in difficulty on board an upturned kayak.

New Brighton lifeboat crew launched along with Wirral Coastguard and conducted a search of the Otterspool and Tranmere areas where they located a large three metre long log floating in the river.

Jay Hennessey, Helm, New Brighton RNLI said: ‘The lifeboat was deployed to the Otterspool area where we located a large three metre long log floating in the river. We thank the concerned member of the public who reported the incident and understand how the item could be easily mistaken.’

Lifeboat crews then passed the location of the log over to the relevant authorities for arrangements to be made to remove the debris from the river and alert other vessels in the area to the hazard.
