Outcome:

Search Completed - Noting Found. False Alarm - Good Intent

Details:

Called to reports of a person in the water near Chapel Point, Chapel St Leonards. Skegness ILB made it to scene and commenced a search, due to the tidal conditions a decision was made to launch the all weather lifeboat. 

Both boats searched the area and nothing was found, it was believed that the original sighting may have been a large seal.

This was a great call by the first informant and although believed to be a false alarm it was made with good intent. 

As always if you believe someone may be in trouble in the water or on the beach always dial 999 and ask for the coastguard.
