Coastguard team assist Dorset Police

Just before 18.00 last night , Dorset Police requested assistance to search the area around Old Harry Rocks for a missing person.

Arriving on scene the Coastguard team liaised with Police and requested both Swanage Lifeboats to search the base of cliffs whilst the Coastguard officers searched the top from the Banks Arms to Ballard Point.

The team deployed rope rescue equipment in places to allow a cliff technician to check safely over the edge of the cliffs.

Having searched for nearly two hours, Dorset Police confirmed the person had been located safe in the Bournemouth area just after 8pm and all units were returned to their stations.
