In an emergency call 999 and ask for the Coastguard

The lifeboat launched to investigate a small vessel off Studd Hill, reported by a person ashore as possibly broken down.

The lifeboat crew located the craft in the dark after a short search, assisted by Herne Bay Coastguards ashore, who were with the first informant.

The occupants were found to be fishing, and not in need of any assistance.

The lifeboat therefore returned to station, with the call being deemed as a “false alarm, with good intent”.
