The Initial Response Team, the IRT was tasked to search for a ‘missing’ male. The coastguard received a 999 call from a male holidaymaker saying that his friend had gone fishing and was now lost. Apparently the gentlemen had spent an hour searching the foreshore and the area around the harbour , even wading out to his knees at some points. The coastguards found the ‘missing’ man safe and well fishing off the North Wall within a few minutes.
