0.51 hours at sea


The volunteer crew was tasked following reports of a person in the water at the Joppa end of Portobello beach.

The lifeboat made best speed to the scene but whilst passing Seafield it was confirmed that the person had come out of the water. It was later confirmed that the person was a photographer who had entered the water in the course of his work, and was not in any difficulty.
