Walton: Coastguards investigate flashing light
9:41am Friday 30th August 2013 in News
COASTGUARDS were sent to investigate a sailing boat which looked to be calling for help by flashing a light.
A member of public called 999 after spotting the boat, which appeared to be trying to attract attention by using the light.
The Walton Coastguard team launched to look into it, assisted by a nearby yacht, but nothing untoward was found and the units stood down.
