Two major searches in 48 hours

The volunteer coastguard team have had two very long nights in the last 48 hours.

On Wednesday evening the team backed up by the St Albans Coastguard team were tasked to assist Dorset Police in searching for a person in the dunes at Studland.

Sadly during the search a body was located in the dune area North of Knoll Beach.

On Thursday night both teams were tasked again to assist Dorset Police in the Dancing Ledge area to search for a local missing man.

The Coastguard teams searched the cliff tops whilst both Swanage Lifeboats carried out a sea search.
DORSAR members carried out inland search.

At 1am, teams were stood down having searched the area but not locating the missing male.
