It was called off after the person was found safe ‘elsewhere’, an RNLI spokesman said.

Police also attended, as did the Coastguard, which said the service – recently hit by a number of resignations of disgruntled volunteers upset by how it is now being run – no longer comments ‘on incidents which have involved a concern for welfare’.
