If you recall our first episode, we took a visit to the Rhyl RNLI station and spent a day learning about what they do and how they utilise their 110 Land Rover Defender.

A few days ago, however, it was the RNLI rescuing a Land Rover. Instead of them using theirs to rescue something else.

The Aberdeen Coastguard alerted their volunteers shortly after 6.40am on Saturday 6th September.

The Invergordon RNLI lifeboat attended the incident, which had occurred at Cromarty Firth, just off the slip-way, next to the Invergordon Sailing Club.

A Land Rover 110 had become submerged up to the window sills with one person trapped inside. The RNLI’s inflatable, daughter, craft, was deployed to intercept the stricken Landy.

No injuries had been sustained and the casualty was given a full, medical, checkup. The Land Rover, however, was towed to the safety of the carpark.
