Coastguard alert over boat in Stonehaven driveway

A search which was launched off the Aberdeenshire coast following an alert from a personal locator beacon found it was coming from a boat in a driveway.

The alarm was raised at about 10:15 just north of Stonehaven.

The search involved a lifeboat from the town and one from Aberdeen.

Coastguards said it was called off after the emergency beacon was traced to a residential driveway.
