COASTGUARD and lifeboat crews carried out a search at Wootton Creek last night (Tuesday) following reports of two people shouting in the water.

Ryde Inshore Rescue and the Bembridge Coastguard Rescue Team were called to the scene, near the pontoon area, shortly before 10pm.

A UK Coastguard spokesperson said the people were found splashing in the water and the incident was recorded as 'people having fun, not to panic.'
