Barrow Lifeboat called out to incident at Jubilee Bridge involving a small plane


Barrow Lifeboat Station’s volunteer crew launched their inshore lifeboat this afternoon to assist emergency services who were dealing with an incident at Jubilee Bridge.

The call for assistance came from the regional HM Coastguard base in Holyhead at 1-42pm this afternoon.

The crew was paged and the inshore lifeboat, ‘Vision of Tamworth’, was launched at 1-55pm with Dave Kell at the helm, assisted by Mike Harris and Saul Tomlin. As the lifeboat approached the bridge, some ten minutes later, it was requested by HM Coastguard to maintain a discreet distance from the scene and await further instruction.

At 2-24pm the lifeboat was stood down by HM Coastguard who reported that the incident had been resolved successfully by the emergency services – Cumbria Police, North West Ambulance Service, Cumbria Fire & Rescue Service and Furness Coastguard were all in attendance.

A spokesperson from Barrow RNLI said:

"As the lifeboat made its way back to the lifeboat station, reports came through that there was concern for a small plane which had landed on sands north of Piel Island on the west side of Walney Channel. The crew of the lifeboat checked on the welfare of those with the plane who stated that they were fine and not in danger.

"The lifeboat returned to the boathouse at 2-45pm where it was washed down and made ready for the next launch.

"The weather at the time of the incident was fine and clear. The wind was south, south-easterly, Force 3, with low water due at 3-43pm with a height of 2.8 metres."
