Eastbourne all-weather lifeboat was was tasked yesterday evening (16 Sept) to two incidents 

A fire broke out at the scrapyard on Newhaven quayside yesterday afternoon and the ALB was tasked to assist with the provision of safety cover for East Sussex fire and rescue personnel as they dealt with the incident. 0n route to Newhaven the crew were asked to investigate a report from a member of the public that three kayakers were in trouble near Eastbourne pier. The kayakers were located but did not require assistance, the lifeboat therefore continued on its original mission.
