Details
The lifeboat was diverted from a training exercise to a report of a swimmer in difficulties 300 yards off the Marine Hotel, Tankerton.

However on arrival the swimmer had made his own way ashore, and stated that he was fine, and had not required any assistance.

The call was deemed to be a false alarm, with good intent.
