It followed a busy day for the RNLI, with the Whitstable crew also being called to Warden Point on the Isle of Sheppey after children were seen climbing into an old pillbox. The crew was stood down once it was confirmed the children had left the pillbox.

Meanwhile there were also four call outs at Margate yesterday, as thousands visited the beaches to enjoy the sunshine.
