When the lives of the volunteers are interrupted by the sound of their pagers, the crews have no idea what they may be facing. All they know is to expect the unexpected. \n\nIn Cleethorpes on the Humber estuary, the pagers go off on a calm summer’s day. Arriving at the station, the crew discover two lives are in imminent danger - two teenagers are stuck fast in mud with the incoming tide threatening to overwhelm them.\n\nOn Loch Ness in Scotland, at one of the RNLI’s few inland stations, a routine call to pick up a boat that has broken its moorings becomes a race to save a family of four as a more urgent call comes in. The mast has snapped on their yacht, threatening to capsize the boat and throw the family into the freezing waters of the loch.
