Lifeboat called to person's aid

Douglas lifeboat was called out last night after reports of someone entering the sea off Douglas beach.

The volunteer crew was called out shortly before 10pm, in search of a person entering the sea opposite the Empress Hotel on Loch Promenade.

The RNLI-all weather lifeboat Marine Engineer was launched to help Coastguards and Police, who were already at the scene. 

However, after a thorough search the missing person was reported to have been found safe and well.
