Mayor of South Tyneside Ernest Gibson Goes Overboard with Tynemouth RNLIThe Mayor of South Tyneside, Councillor Ernest Gibson, took the plunge when he volunteered to be our ‘Man Overboard’ in a short rescue display given by Tynemouth RNLI during the opening celebrations for the new Littlehaven Promenade and Seawall.

Cllr. Gibson not only enjoyed his first rescue from the all weather lifeboat but volunteered to jump into the sea for a second time, to be rescued by the inshore lifeboat, before being returned to dry land!
