'False alarm' air search called off

The air search of an area off the Co Galway coast has been called off.

A coastguard spokesperson said the distress signal picked up earlier was a false alarm, and may have been set off accidentally.

Two coastguard helicopters were scrambled to search the area about 30 miles off Slyne Head, near Clifden.
