That was quite a drama on a cold, moonlit night – helicopters throbbing overhead, circling for half an hour, vans with flashing lights driving through Ventnor and homing in on Flowers Brook – coastguards, police, men in hi-viz suits on the cliff path, a small craft just off the coast with a red light and flashing green one.

I’m glad they found the missing person.
