At 18:10 on Wednesday 28 June 2017 UK Coastguard requested the immediate launch of Seahouses Inshore Lifeboat to the report of persons in difficulty in the water at Beadnell Bay. The weather was not suitable for an ILB launch at Seahouses.
Launch Authority requested the launch of both Seahouses Lifeboats.
The Inshore Lifeboat travelled to Beadnell by road, to launch at the Bay, and the All Weather Lifeboat was launched on service from Seahouses.
The All Weather Lifeboat arrived on scene at 18:45 hrs by which time the casualties had been accounted for by the Inshore Lifeboat and the local shore based coastguard officers.
The All Weather Lifeboat left the scene and returned to station, while the Inshore Lifeboat was recovered and returned to station by road.
