The team from Flamborough RNLI were alerted at 11.32am to the sea off North Landing where they found a kayak drifting.

After a short search, the volunteer crew found the kayaker who had managed to get himself ashore.

Two crew members went ashore to speak to him and escort him to safety. The drifting kayak was then retrieved.

Flamborough RNLI were stood down at 12:20pm, and the lifeboat and volunteer crew returned safely to the station at South Landing at 12:39pm.
