COASTGUARD ALERT: Reports a boat had run aground at Exmouth in the early hours of Saturday, November 26, sparked a search by the town’s coastguards. Exmouth coastguard rescue officers were tasked shortly before 3.30am, but found nothing.
A Portland coastguard spokesman said: “Exmouth coastguard rescue officers investigated a report from a concerned member of the public that an unidentified vessel had run aground in the River Exe. A search was carried out, but nothing untoward was found.”
