Macduff lifeboat mayday alert search stood down

A lifeboat search has been stood down after a mayday call was picked up.

A spokesman for the RNLI said Macduff lifeboat searched the bay area around Macduff and Banff. Coastguard teams were also helping.

The mayday was picked up over the radio rather than from a distress beacon.

The search was later stood down when nothing was found.
