FEARS a kayaker was in trouble at Freshwater Bay sparked a search involving the UK Coastguard helicopter.
Rescue crews, including the Needles Coastguard Rescue Team and Freshwater Independent Lifeboat, were called to the bay shortly before 2pm today (Wednesday) following an emergency call from a member of the public.
They reported seeing a kayaker in the water, swimming alongside a kayak.
A UK Coastguard spokesman said an extensive search of the area was carried out, but nothing was found.
"Using all our resources, there was nothing to indicate anyone was in danger," he said.
