Hemsby Broads Rescue was paged by Humber Coastguard on Boxing Day at 22;50 hours and did not finish until 06:30 the following morning after a very challenging tasking. The crew were tasked to search for and assist a vessel that was reported to be drifting somewhere between Cantley and Langley Marshes. The vessel was reported to have one person on board who was potentially suffering from a psychological episode.

The casualty vessel was quickly located near the marshes bow first in the bank with one occupant on board. The casualty condition was not helped by a combination of a pre-existing condition and the consumption of alcohol and other substances. Hemsby Broads rescue put three crew members on board the vessel and managed to calm the casualty and safely transit the boat to a safe mooring at Cantley, where Gorleston Coastguard was waiting to assist in the care of the casualty.  

Unfortunately, during the handover from the Hemsby Crew to the Coastguard, the individual became agitated and aggressive. Despite the best efforts of all concerned, the team could not calm the casualty, who proceeded to intimate that they would use a firearm if the crew did not withdraw. Despite the threat, the crew and coastguard continued to offer care to the casualty. A kitchen-style knife was then produced by the casualty, and crew members were threatened with the blade.

To prevent injury to anyone, including the casualty, the crew withdrew to a safe distance hoping the withdrawal would calm the individual. Unfortunately, this simply allowed him to cut his mooring lines and make off back toward Langley Marshes. In his aggressive and agitated state, the Crew requested assistance from the Police, who quickly deployed units to Cantley to offer additional assistance.  Once on scene and fully briefed, Police Officers and the Hemsby Crew searched for the casualty, who was once again located.

During an attempt to calm the casualty, he continued to show aggressive behaviour and threatened all concerned. During this phase of the incident, two Police officers were assaulted, one being bitten and the other receiving a head injury. Other members of the rescue team were also spat at. At this point, it was deemed reasonable force to use a Taser to subdue the casualty, who was then arrested for the welfare of the casualty and others. He was placed in the rescue boat for transit back to Cantley, and during this phase of the operation, a fuel can was thrown at the vessel, and he also managed to kick out and damage the engine.

Once back at Cantley, the individual was taken into custody, and the Rescue boat went back to the scene to pick up the remaining officers and await the arrival of the Ambulance. Once the casualty and Police were all secure, Hemsby Broads Rescue returned to base for wash-down and preparation for their next tasking.

The crew would like to thank the staff at the Reed Cutters for staying late and offering hot drinks to the crew and other services during the incident.

Just imagine how this would have panned out if it had been stateside,

still, on the upside, at least we haven't got to pull down statues and start apologising for everything that took place since the middle ages.

Was it anyone known here, I wonder?

Was it someone that we know? Maybe Playful Wink , any likely candidates?

Had it happened in America, I recall the words of an American friend, "regretfully my fellow countrymen are prone to making little and big bangs". About sums it up!

Hemsby Broads Rescue was paged this evening at 17:39 to assist a 27' Vessel near Surlingham Broad that was experiencing difficulties due to the weather conditions; with only one person on board, they were unable to navigate the conditions safely.

Hemsby Broads rescue put crew on board the vessel and managed to get it underway, and the rescue boat escorted the vessel to a safe mooring for the night. Also on scene were Gorleston Coastguard.

Once the vessel was secure, Hemsby Broads Rescue was stood down and returned to base to prepare for the next call.

With high winds expected in the region over the next few days, it is essential to be prepared, ensure your lines are secure and stay safe.

A bit more to the above call out
Job 28/'22

Gorleston Coastguard Rescue Team were paged at 08:51 on 22/2/2022 to assist Norfolk F&RS for public safety after a cat became stuck in a recess in the iron work of the river wall at Runham Vauxhall.
We made sure members of the public concerned for the animal's welfare were not placing themselves in any danger.
After the animal was rescued from the water by the crew of Gt Yarmouth & Gorleston Inshore Lifeboat a decision was made to land 'Icicle' further upriver.
Meantime, we borrowed a  pet carrier from the RSPCA clinic at Tar Works Rd, met the ILB near Marina Quays on the R Bure to collect the animal and transported it back to be checked over by a vet. Because the owner had it microchipped Icicle was happily reunited quickly with its owner.
Thanks to our RNLI colleagues, NF&RS, the local RSPCA and members of the public who first drew the emergency services attention to the incident.
For once a purr - fect ending!

If you see anyone in trouble along the coast or on the Norfolk Broads please?? 999 and ask for the coastguard.
