Both Skegness lifeboats were launched last night (Wednesday, July 23) to search for a missing child.
A group of children swimming in the sea realised one of their friends was not with them when they returned ashore.
Skegness inshore lifeboat Peterborough Beer Festival IV was launched at 6:40pm.
It was followed shortly afterwards by the all-weather lifeboat, Lincolnshire Poacher.
Both lifeboats were stood down and returned to station just before 7pm when the child was found safe ashore by Police.
