Whitstable lifeboat crews launch for the first time in 2014

An 8ft angling dinghy that broke down off Hampton in Herne Bay provided Whitstable lifeboat crews with their first call out in 2014.

They were called at 12.14pm and found a 17-year-old boy from Canterbury 400 yards off the Heron Angling Club.

Spokesman Chris Davey said: "The lifeboat crew took the craft and its occupant back to shore where the Herne Bay mobile coastguard unit took over."
