Scarborough RNLI’s two lifeboats have been temporarily stood down during the ongoing search for a missing angler off Burniston cliffs.
The search was concentrated on the cliffs, shoreline and sea at Hundale Point and Cloughton Wyke, just north of Scarborough, in difficult conditions caused by the second biggest tide in January and heavy swells hampering the search.
The missing man’s two dogs are alive at the scene and are being recovered by coastguard rescue teams.
The man had been angling at Hundale Point, near Scarborough, but failed to return home at 9:30pm yesterday when planned.
Three teams of coastguards, from Burniston, Scarborough and Ravenscar, and a Sea King helicopter from RAF Boulmer were also involved in the search.
