Search and Rescue attempt for man who left his bicycle on ferry

Solent Coastguard began a search yesterday afternoon when police informed them that a man who had boarded the Lymington Wightlink Ferry was not seen to disembark the ferry. The alert was raised when the man’s bicycle was found onboard. Lymington and Needles Coastguard stations, together with the Lymington inshore lifeboat and a police lauch, carried out a coastline search for the man.

After examining CCTV footage from the ferry to try and ascertain his whereabouts, Hampshire Police finally found the man – unharmed and at home!
