The Coastguard has criticised the vandals who set two boats adrift on Windermere. The motorboats were set loose in the Ferry Nab area of the lake this morning. The coastguard, police and lake wardens were all scrambled to the scene after reports there could've been someone on board. A spokesman for the Coastguard said the incident had diverted resources away from any other serious incidents that might have been happening elsewhere at the time. It's not clear who set the boats adrift but a collapsed tent and a quantity of alcohol was found on the shoreline nearby. The Coastguard is responsible for safety and other emergencies on the lakes in the Lake District. The Windermere Lake Wardens are there to patrol and look after the lake and provide support for agencies like the Coastguard, police and others.
