Latest Shouts
07/06/15 - Minehead's D class lifeboat launched  to a fishing vessel aground just off Minehead. The vessel managed to 'unground' itself. The vessel and crew were confirmed ok and proceeded back to Watchet in company with another fishing boat.
31/05/15 - Both boats were launched to 4 people cut off by the tide at Kilve. The D class managed to veer down into the cliff and safely recover all 4. They were then all transported back to Watchet Marina.


03/05/15 - Minehead's Atlantic lifeboat launched to some kayaks in trouble off Foreland Lighthouse. Seven kayakers located in two groups ashore - all requiring assistance, one with an injured ankle. Crews from Minehead and Ilfracombe lifeboats recovered all kayakers and kayaks safely to Lynmouth harbour and a waiting ambulance.


16/04/15 - Atlantic lifeboat called out to join a search with Barry Dock Lifeboat to a report of red flares sighted off Minehead. Search stood down by coastguard as a false alarm with good intent.
