The headline is somewhat at odds with the contents of the piece:

"The Hastings Coastguard Rescue Team plus the Hastings inshore RNLI lifeboat were sent to the scene. When they got there, they found the two people had managed to swim back to shore where they were met and looked after by the Coastguard rescue officers and an ambulance crew. It doesn’t appear that they suffered any injuries. "

I think most journos must be pissed up for a lot of their working day...

On this occasion its government press release dept that must be pissed up...

But a headline that says... "Coasties arrive after drama pretty much over" doesn't quite have the same ring to it...
