BEMBRIDGE Coastguard Rescue Team was called to investigate concerns for individuals cut off by the tide this evening (Monday).

At 6.17pm, the team was called to the scene near Puckpool Park.

A search was carried out and the incident was deemed a false alarm with good intent.

A spokesperson for the Bembridge crew said the first informant did exactly the right thing by calling 999 and asking for the Coastguard.
