Lifeboat called out after flare sighted above Stonehaven Bay

A Mearns lifeboat was called out following reports of a flare above a popular local beach on Wednesday afternoon.

The Stonehaven Bay area was scoured by the town’s RNLI lifeboat after two sightings at about 3.20pm.

A spokeswoman for the Stonehaven lifeboat station said: “Reports of flares seen in Stonehaven Bay. Boat launched and crew searched but nothing found.

“Call out with good intent. Boat back on service and crew having well earned cuppa.”
