Fog-bound boat helped by lifeboat
A boat which got disoriented in fog 12 miles off the coast was helped to safety by Berwick lifeboat.
The all-weather lifeboat was launched at 5pm on Monday to search an area south east of Berwick, locating it with its onboard equipment. Berwick lifeboat followed the RIB back into Berwick.
A Berwick lifeboat spokesman, posting on Facebook, wrote: ‘Even though the RIB was well equipped with navigation equipment, once in fog it shows how easy it can be to become disoriented. A good outcome today.’
