RESCUE teams were called to reports of a person in the sea.

The search and rescue helicopter was dispatched, as well as coastguard rescue teams from Hill Head and Calshot, at 3.30pm yesterday.

A person had been reported to be in the water along the Netley shore.

The crews spent around an hour searching the water but found no-one.

The Hill Head rescue team stayed on the scene to reassure members of the public.

The Coastguard said the incident had been called in from a payphone.
