Hovercraft task to 2 casualties and dog cut off in Leasowe Bay

Hoylake Hovercraft was tasked by UK Coastguard to reports of two casualties and a dog cut off by the tide on a sandbank in Leasowe Bay. The hovercraft launched and arrived on scene quickly, where the casualties and their dog were brought on board by the volunteer crew before being transferred ashore to waiting Wirral Coastguard Rescue Team officers. The hovercraft then returned to station.
