Eastbourne Inshore Lifeboat had an unusual call out this evening (16 July).

After Dover Coastguard received numerous reports of an inflatable pink flamingo floating out to sea, the crew was tasked to recover it. Although no one was in trouble, it was hoped bringing the giant bird ashore would prevent further alarm calls.

On bringing ‘Doris’, as the inflatable has been dubbed, back to shore, there was quite a crowd, waiting to welcome the volunteers back.
