Reports of a person on the rocks at Ryde Harbour prompted a coastguard search in the early hours of this morning (Sunday).

Coastguard and lifeboat crews were alerted shortly after 3am.

A full search was undertaken by the Ventnor and Bembridge Coastguard rescue teams, and Ryde Inshore Rescue.

After almost two and half hours nothing was found, and teams stood down at around 5.30am.
