This morning  at 02:20 the crew of Dunbar lifeboat were paged by Aberdeen coastguard to assist with Police Scotland after they were informed of a person in danger of entering the water.   

The person was in the area of the harbour entrance were Police Scotland were in negotiation for approximately  an hour and a half. Dunbar's ILB and Coastguard team were on standby in the harbour whilst Police Scotland resolved the issue. 

At approximately 04:00 all units were stood down after the police managed to resolve the issue. 

Dunbar's ILB was then recovered and made ready for service shortly after.
