RNLB Alfred Albert Williams (Tamar All-Weather Lifeboat 16-17) was launched at 1am this morning at the request of UK (Solent) Coastguard to investigate a report of a Red Flare that had been sighted 1 mile south of Ventnor.   

HMS Middleton (a Hunt-class mine countermeasures vessel) was also in the area searching.  Having found nothing after 2 hours, both vessels were released and the Alfred Albert Williams returned to Bembridge and was recovered by 3.15am.  For two of the crew it was their first service.
