ILB Searching off Beachy Head

An abandoned car at a notorious suicide location prompted the launch of Eastbourne’s inshore lifeboat (ILB) this morning 

Concern was first raised with the discovery of an apparently abandoned car at Beachy Head. Fearing the worst outcome Dover Coastguard requested the launch of Eastbourne’s ILB to conduct a shoreline search of the area.

Having completed the thorough search with nothing found the volunteer crew were stood down from service and returned to station shortly after 13.00.
