A rescue team was called out into the Bay after reports of an object in the water – only to find out it was an inflatable shark.

The HM Coastguard crew went out to the false alarm at 4.10pm on July 19.

It is believed the killer shark-shaped beach toy may have been washed off the beach at Heysham Head.

It was last seen drifting out to sea.
