Shoreline search proves fruitless

COASTGUARD teams were out this evening searching the shoreline at Stranraer. A spokeswoman from the Marine and Coastguard Agency told the Free Press in the the last few minutes: "There was a search this evening for a possible person in difficulty. However the search has now been completed with nothing found." Coastguard teams from Stranraer, Portpatrick and Ballantrae were involved – along with officers from Police Scotland. Our picture shows the search progressing along the Cockle Shore. Stranraer Coastguard posted: "Team stood down and returned to station. The informant made the call with good intent. "If you have concerns regarding anyone on the coastline, please call #999 and ask for the #coastguards. We are on call 24/7 and ready to respond to #emergencies. If in doubt call us – it's better to be safe than sorry."
