Lytham Lifeboat called to River Douglas

Today (Monday 24th September 2012) just before 5:00pm Liverpool Coastguard called out LythamLifeboat to assist them in a rescue after a boat got into difficulties in the River Douglas. They arrived at the scene to find the boat had made its way back to the boatyard after developing engine trouble.

Two men from Southport were on the boat when it became stuck on a sand bank
