Dungeness RNLI tasked to a tasked to search for a potential missing swimmer

Today at around 2pm, our volunteer crew were tasked to search for a potential missing swimmer that had been reported by a concerned member of the public by the Hythe Imperial hotel.

The Shannon-class lifeboat alongside Littlestone Lifeboat Station, a coastguard helicopter and HM Coastguard Folkestone rescue team, searched the area taking into account last sightings, tide and weather conditions but nothing of concern was found.

All search and rescue assets were then stood down.
