A Wirral RNLI lifeboat crew launched to a man on a sea defence wall at 8.25pm on 25 June 2018.

Wirral coastguard alerted the RNLI that a male was about to be cut off by the tide at the sea defence known locally as ‘The Hole in the Wall’ out from the New Brighton Pierrot roundabout on Kings Parade.

The RNLI team made their way to the man and informed him that the incoming tide was due to flood the area.

He then made his way back to shore after being advised by the crew.

A spokesman said: “Although the water was calm and there was no wind, on arriving at the popular fishing spot RNLI lifeboat crew advised a local fisherman that the area was about to flood with the incoming tide.

“The RNLI crew waited as the man decided to head back to shore so that they were certain of his safety.

“RNLI volunteers returned to the lifeboat station at 8.45pm and prepared the lifeboat for service.”
