Seaside Rescue

We pay tribute to our brave rescue services busy patrolling the south coast by joining them as they're called out on a wide variety of maritime missions.

We begin with a rude awakening for coastguard officer Eddie Weller, who's called out of bed to save the day when a car goes crashing over a cliff in Torbay.

We also climb aboard the Whisky Bravo helicopter as the team rescue a boy who's fallen 100 feet down a cliff in Dorset, comes to the aid of a 78-year-old paraglider suffering from a backbreaking accident and watch as the crew flies in to help the people of Bocastle stranded on their rooftops after flash floods submerged the town.

Meanwhile, the RNLI teams rescue a diver found feet-up, near death, look for two missing girls lost at sea and are called out for the biggest rescue mission of the summer when 35 swimmers are swept out into the waves.

Quite simply, there's never a quiet moment for the team.
