Arbroath lifeboat crew were called out twice in 24 hours yesterday to deal with incidents at the town’s cliffs.
Both incidents related to concern for people at the cliffs. It is not known if the call-outs were connected.
The crew first launched just after midnight, sending both lifeboats.
A spokesman for Arbroath RNLI said: “Arbroath RNLI volunteers were requested to launch both of the charity’s lifeboats to a multi-agency incident last night .
“The crew’s pagers sounded at midnight and both the inshore and all weather lifeboats were launched around 10 minutes later.
“Thankfully, shortly after leaving Arbroath Harbour, HM Coastguard confirmed the incident was resolved and both boats could stand down.
