Tynemouth RNLI inshore lifeboat rescues jetskiA STRANDED jetski rider was towed to safety by Tynemouth lifeboat on Thursday evening after his craft broke down in the lower Tyne harbour, a short distance from the lifeboat station.

The alarm was raised at 20:35 after the crew of the Port of Tyne pilot launch Collingwood came across the craft and took it under tow but was unable to get it to shore. Owing to the proximity of the craft it was decided to utilise the station boarding boat to take over the tow and take the jetski the short distance to South Shields public slipway.

Once the rider was safely ashore the lifeboat returned to station, arriving at 21:00.

Lifeboat: BB-544
