At 10:51hr on Saturday 28th July 2018, Seahouses Lifeboat Station was in the middle of a crew recruitment day, when their call-out pagers interrupted the event, and the crew had to quickly go into action. UK Coastguard requested the launch of Seahouses All Weather Lifeboat, to try and locate a distress beacon (EPIRB), transmitting in the Beadnell Bay Area. The Lifeboat is equipped with radio direction finding equipment. At this stage it was not known if this was a genuine or accidental operation of the beacon on a vessel.
