NMOC requested the launch of the ALB to a public report of a floating object 100m off Chesil cove. Initially declined by the DLA due to not being a credible sighting, when the CRT and police were later called and it was confirmed that the object appeared to be the top half of a body, the ALB launched to investigate.

Upon arrival on scene it was confirmed that the object was a marker buoy. The ALB was then released and returned to station to be made ready for the next tasking
