Gosport Independent Lifeboat operated by GAFIRS (Gosport and Fareham Inshore Rescue Service) was scrambled yesterday to attend the rescue of a married jetski couple who came unstuck after their PWC (Personal Water Craft) malfunctioned.

Having run into difficulties off Southsea seafront the couple were picked up and taken back to the slipway adjacent to the Ferry Boat Hayling Island. The jetbike was also returned to the same spot.

Fortunately conditions on the water were sedate which ensured a swift and easy pick up was completed. The couple were reported to be unharmed.
