Byline: Ramsgate RNLI’s new inshore lifeboat (ILB) launched at 3.06am on Saturday 11 October to rescue a person in the water in Ramsgate’s inner harbour.

The launch took place around twelve hours after the ending of the ceremony in which HRH The Princess Royal had officially named the station’s new Atlantic 85 inshore lifeboat Claire and David Delves. On arrival at the scene the ILB crew quickly located the person and got them safely on board the lifeboat. They were brought back to the lifeboat station and taken into a warm room where they were checked over by an ambulance crew and found to be in the early stages of hypothermia and as a result taken into the ambulance for further hospital treatment.
