SH7

At 13.10hr on Friday 5th February 2016, the North East Ambulance Service contacted Humber Coastguard, to request assistance to reach an injured elderly female with a suspected broken arm or wrist. The causeway was closed by the tide. Seahouses All Weather Lifeboat was requested to launch to convey the ambulance crew to the island. However, due to the delay in the time taken for the ambulance arriving at Seahouses, it was decided to despatch the Lifeboat straight to Holy Island, as there was concern for the welfare of the casualty.
