Lifeboat crew called out to reports of person at foot of Bempton Cliffs

The volunteer crew of the Bridlington lifeboat was tasked by the coastguards after a report of a person possibly at the foot of Bempton Cliffs on Wednesday (19th April) afternoon.

The Antony Patrick Jones launched from the south beach, Bridlington at 3:53 pm and set out to conduct an extensive search of an area north of Bridlington, from Selwick Bay to Speeton.

During the search lifeboat crew were joined by the Police, Coastguards and a pod of dolphins.

With the search proving negative, at 6:50pm the crew of the Bridlington lifeboat were instructed to head to Bridlington harbour.

However shortly before 8pm it was confirmed that the person had been found safe and well, the volunteer crew returned to the beach and the lifeboat was recovered at 7:55pm and made ready for service.

Steve Emmerson, Bridlington RNLI coxswain, said: ‘The tasking went very well and we conducted a detailed search of the area including the many coves on that part of the coast as instructed by the coastguards.

“Thankfully, as the person has now been found safe and well, it was a good result for all concerned.”
