At 2.47pm this afternoon both our all weather and inshore lifeboats launched.
The request came in from Falmouth Coastguard, and the crew quickly responded.
The crew got underway to Clodgy Point in order to perform a search. There were concerns that there may be a potential casualty in need of assistance. The crew arrived and both boats performed a full search, the inshore focusing on the shoreline. After a detailed search had been performed, and the crew were satisfied that there was no casualty in the area, they returned to the station.
Key facts about the RNLI
