Littlehampton lifeboat launched following a report that a dinghy with three people onboard was in difficulty


Littlehampton RNLI received a request from the UK Coastguard at 6.24pm on Tuesday 14 June, following a 999 call from a member of the public who suspected that the crew of the dinghy were clinging to the posts at the harbour entrance.

The stations Atlantic 75 lifeboat Renée Sherman and volunteer crew launched at 6.29pm and headed out of the harbour towards the scene. The casualty was located and fortunately in this instance it was a false alarm with good intent, as once the lifeboat arrived the crew of the dinghy confirmed that they were innocently foraging and were not in any distress. After checking with the initial informant that it was the same dinghy the lifeboat was stood down and returned to the station, where it was made ready for service.
