The inshore lifeboat was launched and the all weather lifeboat was preparing to launch to a report of a missing vulnerable woman who was reported to have gone into the water at Lancing near Widewater Lagoon.

As the crew proceeded to the scene, she was found by the Shoreham coastguard team and handed over to Sussex Police. The inshore lifeboat returned to station. It was established that the casualty was the same woman that both lifeboats had been called to search for the night before.
