Just after 9 am this morning, the IRT were called out to attend Peveril Point as some fishing rods and kit were found. Portland MRCC were concerned that something had happened to the owner so asked for a search to commence.
After searching about nothing further was found and the NCI staff were asked to keep an eye on the equipment until the owner(s) returned.
We expect the owners had gone for some breakfast, however the informant to the Coastguard was quite right in calling in with concern. Please do not leave items unattended it quite often sparks searches unnecessarily.
