Falmouth Inshore Lifeboat was launched at 17:14 to assist in a search for a person reported in the water at Porthluney Cove. A search of the cove and surrounding coastline was carried out by the Inshore Lifeboat while the Police and the Mevagissey Coastguard Cliff Rescue Team search the beach.

At 18:09 the search was called off as all indications were that it had been a false alarm with good intent. The Inshore Lifeboat was back at its station by 18:35.

Further details will follow shortly.
