Team net an incident

As the patrol headed out today, the National Maritime Operations Centre requested the team attend a report of a large fishing net washed up at Peveril Point.

Watch keepers at the National Coastwatch lookout had reported the net and were concerned it could be a hazard.

The patrol headed down to the point and found several nets.
Sadly caught in the net were a couple of sea birds so a decision was taken to remove the nets.

A further net was located caught on some rocks so further team members were tasked to assist.

The net was collected up and removed to the boat park for collection by the Town Council , our thanks to them for their assistance.

It’s not always search and rescue incidents for the team but prevention work to avoid accidents or damage to our environment.
