Lifeboat launch after body in sea report

PETERHEAD Lifeboat was launched on Thursday night after reports of a body in the sea off the Buchanhaven area.

After arriving on scene the volunteer crew launched the small daughter craft ‘Y’ boat and confirmed that the ‘casualty’ was in fact a close strung series of three buoys marking fishing creels.

The call was designated as a false alarm with good intent and the lifeboat returned to port shortly afterwards.
