The Dart inshore lifeboat was tasked by the Coastguard to assist the Dartmouth Coastguard SAR team and the Police who were dealing with a distressed young woman in the area of Compass Cove. When the lifeboat arrived on scene the lady had been recovered and, although wet, was safely in the care of the Police. Haydn Glanvill, Paramedic on the lifeboat crew, was landed to help until an Ambulance arrived.
