Bembridge RNLI’s Inshore Lifeboat launched at 10.05pm following the report of a Red Flare being spotted in theWhitecliff Bay area.

RNLB Norman Harvey (D-Class Inshore Lifeboat 778) was launched at 10.05pm this evening at the request of UK (Solent) Coastguard following a report of a Red flare being seen in the Whitecliff Bay area.  Weather and tidal conditions were such that it did not take them long to reach the area and conduct a thorough shoreline search and then one further offshore.  In conjunction with the Ventnor CG team (who fired two flares), they illuminated the area by firing a white illuminating flare; but with nothing seen either by the crew of the Norman Harvey or CG team, they returned to Lane End and were recoved by 10.50pm.
