Peel Lifeboat were asked by the coastguard to check on a group of kayakers that appeared to be in difficulty in windy conditions yesterday.

Seeing some of them in the water along the coast near Peel, a concerned member of the public alerted the Coastguard.

The group, which had been practising rolling and righting their kayaks, were safely ashore before the RNLI volunteer crew could reach them.

‘Although they didn't need assistance on this occasion,’ Carol Hunter, Peel RNLI Lifeboat Press Officer explained, ‘the member of the public did the right thing in alerting the Coastguard. Our advice is always to dial 999 and ask for the Coastguard when you see someone who may be in trouble in the water.’
