RNLI crews were called to reports of an object floating in water last night (Thursday).

Both Burnham-on-Sea lifeboats were sent to the mouth of the River Brue to investigate the incident.

The object was found to be a large tree stump which was recovered to stop it being reported further.

Lifeboat operations manager Matt Davies said: “This was a false alarm with good intent.

“I would encourage anybody who sees something in the water they feel is of concern to call the Coastguard via 999.”
