Search and recue operation at Port Seton suspended
*UPDATE Despite a thorough search of the area, nothing untoward was found and the search has been suspended pending further information.* An extensive search and rescue operation is currently ongoing at Port Seton, East Lothian, after HM Coastguard received a 999 call about a possible swimmer in difficulty. RNLI lifeboats from Kinghorn and North Berwick have been sent, along with coastguard rescue teams from South Queensferry, North Berwick and Fisherrow. The coastguard search and rescue helicopter from Prestwick was also sent. The report of the possible person in difficulty was made at around 7pm today (September 19). If you were in the area at the time, or have any information that could assist with this search, please contact our Aberdeen coastguard operations centre on 01224 592334 as soon as possible.
