Littlehampton lifeboat crew to the rescue of stranded party balloons
5:20pm Saturday 16th February 2013 in News
Lifeboat crew went to the rescue of a sail boarder only to find a big bunch of part balloons.
Littlehampton RNLI crew launched at just after 12.10pm this afternoon after reports of a sail boarder in difficulty off the coast between East Preston and Kingston Gorse.
However, when they reached the destination they discovered that the sail boarder was in fact a large bunch of party balloons.
Coastguard staff said the call was a false alarm with good intentions.
