In a Facebook post by Cleethorpes Coastguard, a spokesperson wrote:

“To assist us with any type of search, whether its for a person or a suspicious object, you can assist us by having a location indicating app on your phone, something like What3Words.
“This will give us a good starting point for our search planning. Please log the location and pass it to the Coastguard operations centre when you speak to them.
“In a Coastal Emergency, dail 999 and ask for the #coastguard”
