On Air Night Flight | Midnight - 5:00am

Search and rescue exercise

The Island's search and rescue resources will be put to the test today (Sunday).

Operation Theseus gets underway at 10am around the Windy Corner area of the Mountain Road and involves between 60 and 70 people from the police, fire and rescue service, coastguard, civil defence and search and rescue dogs.

The exercise involves a search for persons believed to be injured and missing from a vehicle involved in a road traffic collision.

Police Search Advisor PC Kevin Williams who's co-ordinating the exercise says exercises are run every year to test how all the agencies work together.
