RNLI: Our thoughts are with man's family

RNLI volunteers in Tynemouth have offered their condolences to the family of a man who was found dead in the water under the pier.

Volunteer crews recovered the body of an elderly man from the sea at around 1.30pm today.

Our volunteer crewmembers are occasionally called upon to carry out tasks such as recovering deceased casualties and they try to offer those casualties as much dignity as possible during the operation.

Our thoughts go out to the deceased man's family at what will be a difficult and distressing time for them.

– Adrian Don, spokesman for Tynemouth RNLI
