Whilst already afloat on a training exercise the ILB was tasked by the Coastguard to attend an incident where a man was stuck on the cliff at Blackpool Sands. The mobile CG unit was at the cliff top. The ILB was asked to stand by as a CG helicopter winched the man from the cliff to the local carpark. The casualty was then transferred to Hospital by Ambulance with minor injuries.
