Date/Time: 20/12/2011 22:35 - 22:55

Called to Kirkcaldy Harbour for a False Alarm

People Assisted: 0

The lifeboat crew were called to Kirkcaldy Harbour by Fife Police, following the discovery of an object afloat off the sea wall. The object resembled a jacket but was lying in a position that made it look like a person floating face down in the sea. The jacket was located by the crew and recovered on to the boat.

Investigations determined that it had been at sea for some time and was likely to be discarded waste. The crew were stood down.
