A rescue mission has taken place to save a person in the water at Blyth quayside.

Blyth RNLI lifeboat was called shortly before 1pm today (Wednesday) following a report from Northumbria Police of a person in the water at Commissioners Quay in Blyth.

The lifeboat crew administered CRP and oxygen while waiting for a paramedic from a rescue helicopter from RAF Boulmer.

However, paramedics arrived in an ambulance and the helicopter was stood down.

Also in attendance were members of Blyth Coastguard team who had prepared a landing site for the helicopter.

Blyth RNLI lifeboat operations manager, John Scott, said: “I was pleased to see a quick response from the volunteer crew.”
