Yacht run aground off Ellesmere Port

Following another shout earlier this evening, Hoylake Hovercraft was tasked again to a yacht that had run aground in the Ellesmere Port area. The vessel had two persons on board, with one suffering from a head injury due to a fall. The hovercraft quickly arrived on scene, where the crew administered casualty care and secured the vessel's anchor. Both casualties were brought on board the hovercraft and transferred ashore at Tranmere also to waiting Flint & Wirral Coastguard Rescue Team officers. The hovercraft then returned to station to be made ready for her next service.

When RNLI lifeboats are tasked to a rescue this is commonly referred to as a 'shout'.
