08th February 2019 - 13:04
Just after 1300 hrs the team were alerted by the NMOC (National Maritme Operation Centre) to a person entering the water opposite the Fairhaven Hotel. We arrived on scene with Dorset Police and a paramedic to find a local metal detectorist going about his business in a dry suit. The first informant did the right thing by dialing 999 and asking for the Coastguard. A false alarm with good intent. The conditions can only be described as miserable with heavy rain and gales. We were pleased to return to station dry.
