A person was pulled from the water at Whitehaven harbour last night by police officers.

Both Whitehaven and Maryport coastguards were called to reports of a person in the water.

Once they got to scene, the casualty had been recovered from the water by members of Cumbria Police.

A spokesman for Whitehaven Coastguard said: "The casualty was handed over to the North West Ambulance Service, wet but otherwise ok."
