Webcam sighting sparks coastguard alert
AN INTERNET user reported a dark shape in the water at Chesil Cove after spotting it on the Portland Heights hotel webcam.
Portland Bill Coastguard Rescue Officers investigated yesterday morning and the shape turned out to be rafts of seaweed.
Elsewhere, watchkeepers investigated after a member of the public reported that a group of people was cut off by the tide.
Portland Coastguard received a call to the incident at Chapman’s Pool near St Alban’s Head yesterday lunchtime.
Watchkeepers found there was no-one in danger.
Portland Coastguard also received a call yesterday about vessels which had broken from their moorings in and around Poole Harbour due to strong winds.
Recovery action was taken by Poole Harbour Control and the vessel owners.
