The Royal National Lifeboat Institution - Saves Lives at Sea

Lifeboat Stood Down Before Launch at 1:30 am

Fife Police requested the lifeboat's assistance with some youths who had stolen some boats from the Aberdour area.

The crew were asked to find the youths and take them ashore after they had commandeered some small vessels in the area. Just as the crew were preparing to launch HM Coastguard received word from the Police that the youths were safely ashore.

This follows an earlier shout in which the lifeboat was asked to tow a fishing boat ashore after the skipper had reported fouling his propellor. The fisherman received help from another boat and the lifeboat escorted the pair back to Port Seton harbour.

July marks the traditional start to Kinghorn Lifeboat Station's "busy season" as leisure and tourist traffic increases greatly. This season usually runs until the end of August.
