THE COASTGUARD was tasked at 1am this morning (Monday) following reports of a missing person in Cullivoe in Yell.

The Mid Yell coastguard rescue team was sent to the Garth Wind Farm and located the man safe and well shortly after.

The Lerwick team and the coastguard rescue helicopter were also tasked, but they were stood down whilst en route.

Meanwhile the fire service was called out to reports of “garden furniture” on fire at a house in Lerwick at the weekend.
