The Coastguard reported 2 people in the water at Blackness. The RNLI D Class was launched on the request of the Coastguard and the Launch Authority. The Coastguard informed the DLA that Dart Harbour had sent a boat and this stayed with the casualties until the D Class was on scene. A medical assessment took place, and no treatment was required. The casualties were handed over to the Dartmouth Coastguard S & R team, who were going to take them back to Totnes and issue warm blankets. The B Class was also launched to assist .
