Nothing found after mayday alert lifeboats search

A major search off the north east of Scotland coast was called off when nothing was found following a mayday alert.

The spoken mayday was received just before 18:30 on Thursday.

Macduff and Buckie lifeboats were launched as a result. Coastguards said nothing was found, and the search was called off at about 21:20.

On Sunday, Invergordon lifeboat had made a search of the Moray Firth coastline after a spoken mayday call.

The search was later stood down.
