A report was received by Solent Coastguards about a person who was threatening suicide near to the caravan site NW of Selsey Bill. As the Atlantic 85 was already on exercise and fairly close to this area it was tasked to search a short distance off shore for the casualty. The CG Rescue helicopter was also tasked to search, and did so together with the Coastguard shore team.

After an hour’s search and finding no-one in trouble, the lifeboat was stood down and returned to the station. As it did so a report was received that the casualty had been found in a local public house. The lifeboat was made ready for further service.
