Christmas Dinner goes on hold

Christmas dinners went on hold this afternoon when the volunteer Coastguard team were paged by the National Maritime Operations Centre.

A member of the public had reported concern for a member of the public walking along Studland beach.

The team arrived at Knoll Beach and carried out a hasty search of the beach and shoreline. Joined by Dorset Police Officers the car parks were also checked without any further sightings.

The team continued to search and were joined by the Police Helicopter which checked further into the dune area.

With no further information or sightings the team were stood down and returned home after 2 hours.
