Burnham: Lifeboat called to 22ft motorboat
9:07am Saturday 7th July 2012 in News
The Burnham RNLI lifeboat was called to a 22ft motorboat which had run aground.
The Thames Coastguard received a call concerning the boat, named Sofia, from a yacht in the River Crouch at 6.15pm last night.
Two people were spotted trying to return to Burnham in a rigid-hulled inflatable boat, while a third stayed with the motorboat.
The Burnham RNLI Lifeboat was unable to free the vessel but brought three people back to safety.
The boat was recovered when it refloated later.
