An amazing rescue story has unfolded on Facebook. A person was reported to be in the water at Crooklets earlier. Katie Cook Hartop’s husband saw the man fall into the water whilst watching the Bude webcam. He dialled 999, as had other people. Seems a fisherman had been knocked off his boat by a rogue wave which left his boat in full rudder lock, leaving it dangerously going round in circles. Bude Lifeboat was in attendance and managed to get the boat under control, bringing the vessel back to Bude harbour. All safely gathered in. Well done guys!
