RNLI crews in Dartmouth used two flares last night as part of a search around Leonards Cove.

They were called just before 6pm, following reports of a floating object.

Nothing was found and we're told the search will resume this morning

A spokesman said: "Dart lifeboat was tasked earlier this evening after a sighting of an unidentified floating object at Leonards Cove was reported. 

"The lifeboat did a thorough search of the area.

"Coastguards put up two flares to aid the search in diminishing light. 

"Nothing was found. 

"Dart lifeboat will resume the search tomorrow morning."
