ALB ILB Shouts


At 3.04am this morning, after receiving a tasking request from the Falmouth Coastguard Operations Centre, both Penlee lifeboats launched from Newlyn to assist the Penzance Coastguard Rescue Team and officers from Devon & Cornwall Police to search for a person between Newlyn and St Michael’s Mount.

Just as the ALB Ivan Ellen and the Inshore lifeboat Mollie and Ivor Dent left their moorings the missing person was located safe and well in Penzance Harbour – all units were stood down.

Weather – NE 6, slight sea, 1.5m swell, heavy showers.
