In an emergency call 999 and ask for the Coastguard

Whitstable’s Atlantic 85 Lifeboat Lewisco was launched at 10.33am on Saturday to assist a broken down angling dory off Reculver.

 The lifeboat crew located the 18-foot craft with two persons onboard at anchor in the vicinity of the Woolpack Bank, two miles off Reculver.

The craft and its occupants were taken under tow to the ramp in Herne Bay Harbour and the lifeboat then returned to station.
