Reports of person in water in Leasowe Bay

Hoylake Hovercraft was tasked by UK Coastguard following reports of an individual in the water off the Gunsite car park in Leasowe Bay. New Brighton Lifeboat was also tasked. The hovercraft launched but was stood down shortly afterwards when Wirral Coastguard Rescue Team & Merseyside Police officers established that the casualty was a fisherman, who was safe. The call was a false alarm but with good intent.
