This evening the Skerries Coast Guard team were tasked to investigate reports of possible netting debris adrift in the water near Loughshinny. A concerned member of the public had contacted the Coast Guard, fearing the drifting debris may pose a danger to vessels operating in the area.
The Skerries team arrived on scene and with the help from the caller, located the object in the water. The team determined that the nets were not adrift, were well anchored to the shore and were well marked with rope buoys. The nets did not pose a danger to vessels and no further action was required.
