Coastguard team tasked to search for overdue fishermen

Just after midnight the team were tasked to search for two overdue fishermen in Swanage.

A partner had called the Coastguard concerned that their last contact was at 21.00 and now the mobile phones were not being answered.

The team deployed and soon saw lights just beyond Sheps Hollow, the tide was high but the two fisherman were found walking back having fished right under Ballard Down.

Both men were assisted around a small landslip , then back to Sheps Hollow and the Ballard Estate.

Thankfully this incident was brought to a safe conclusion although both might have some explaining too do once they are home.

In a coastal emergency call 999 - Coastguard
