RNLI crews from Hoylake and New Brighton will feature in the first episode of the new series of ‘Saving Lives at Sea’ when it airs on television.
It is being broadcast on BBC Two on Thursday 28 September at 8pm, and includes volunteers rescuing a lone walker trapped in mud on a dangerous stretch of the Sefton coast.
Dave Noble, volunteer crew member at Hoylake RNLI who features in the upcoming episode, said: “Our lifesaving work would not be possible without donations from the public and we’re really delighted to be able to share a frontline view of the rescues they support with their generosity.
“We hope audiences enjoy seeing how our crew worked closely with colleagues at New Brighton RNLI, the coastguard, fire and ambulance services to bring someone from danger.
“It’s a privilege to be featured and to talk about the amazing work of everyone involved in saving lives at sea.”
In 2022, RNLI lifeboat crews around the UK and Ireland launched 9,312 times, saving 389 lives, while the charity’s lifeguards aided 23,204 people and saved 117 lives on some of the UK’s busiest beaches.
