HM Coastguard is appealing for information in relation to a mayday call from a vessel which could be in trouble off Flamborough, Yorkshire
HM Coastguard is appealing for information in relation to a distress call received earlier today.
The appeal for information is in relation to a vessel which could be in trouble off Flamborough on the Yorkshire coast.
HM Coastguard said “We have had reports that a vessel, believed to be called Imogen, put out a Mayday call saying they were taking on water around 13.5 miles southeast of Flamborough.”
An extensive search is being carried out involving a Coastguard search and rescue helicopter from Humberside, two RNLI lifeboats from Bridlington, an independent lifeboat from Hornsea Rescue, Coastguard rescue teams from Bridlington and Hornsea and several nearby commercial vessels.
HM Coastguard made a further announcement at 5.45pm that the search had been suspended this evening pending further information and assets have been stood down.
HM Coastguard is still asking for any more information that might assist us in locating the source of this call. We would like to thank those vessels that responded quickly and assisted in this incident.
If you have any information about the vessel, please contact Humber Coastguard Operations Centre urgently on 01262 672317.
