#coastguard – HM Coastguard is coordinating a search for a missing windsurfer this evening near the mouth of the River Lune, Lancashire, after receiving a report at 4.30pm that four windsurfers had been out and three had made it back to shore but a fourth man in the group had not.

The windsurfer disappeared in foggy conditions near to the entrance to the River Lune, at the south end of Morecambe Bay. The search involves Knott End and Morecambe Coastguard Rescue Teams, Fleetwood and Morecambe Bay RNLI lifeboats, an RNLI operated hover craft and the rescue helicopter from RAF Valley. Police and mountain rescue have also helped with the search.

The search area now covers a large area including the sand banks between the Lune and Fleetwood.

HM Coastguard Wins GAA Match

You know they'll always be there when you need them, but some of the guys from HM Coastguard serving County Down had the opportunity recently to talents of a different kind as they took part in the fifth annual Security & Emergency Services Ireland Forum sports competition held at the home of Belfast Harlequins.

The event involves members of the security and emergency services from across Ireland who could find themselves called upon to cope with major incidents or natural disasters. They come together once a year to build relationships through a day of sporting challenge. The informal associations forged at the sports day help to reinforce a team spirit which could one day prove invaluable.
