A late-night search was carried out for a 'high risk' missing person on the Dorset coast.

Police carrying out a search requested assistance from the Coastguard as they believed the person to be in the Lulworth area.

Coastguard rescue teams from Lulworth and Kimmeridge were alerted just before 11pm on Friday.

A spokesman for the Lulworth team said: "We split into two teams and performed a hasty search around Stair Hole and Lulworth Cove.

"Shortly afterwards, information came through that the person had been found (out of the area, safe and well). With the good news, all resources were stood down just before midnight."
