Falmouth Inshore Lifeboat was launched at 21:45 to search the Carrick Roads following reports of a Red Flare.

Along with the Portscatho Coastguard Cliff Rescue Team the initial search was concentrated around St Just-in-Roseland before it was extended up to Loe Beach and Turnaware Bar.

With nothing being located all units were released and the Inshore Lifeboat was back at its station by 23:25 where it was refuelled and ready for service by 23:50
