RNLI LIFEBOAT AT KINGHORN CALLED OUT FOR LATE EVENING SEARCH

15/01/2005

The RNLI lifeboat at Kinghorn was called into action around 10.15pm tonight, after a report of the sighting of a flare between Cramond Island and the Granton area of Edinburgh was received by the Coastguard at Fife Ness.

The volunteer crew, consisting of Helmsman Scott McIlravie with Crew members Darren Maddison, Joanne Wibberly and Neil Chalmers are currently concentrating their search around an area adjacent to Silverknowes Caravan Park, Edinburgh, although at this early stage of the operation there are no further details available.

The lifeboat will continue to search the area until something is found or until such time that they have completed their search area and are stood down by the Coastguard.

Please DO NOT contact the lifeboat station as the shore crew are monitoring the radio messages and unable to furnish any further details at this stage.
