when the helicopter had to come all the way from Stornoway to rescue somebody who wasn’t lost

I’m fairly ignorant of the facts of the episode this afternoon when the helicopter had to come all the way from Stornoway to rescue somebody who wasn’t lost. I hope, Hugh you will not cause this to be published if I have got it too wrong.
But it does seem irresponsible to me that someone has frivolously called in the sea rescue service in the middle of the day without checking if there was any need.
It rather smacks of crying, “Wolf,Wolf.” and may reflect on Scorraig’s good name and also, possibly and more importantly on us when there is real need.
For every time she shouted, “Fire.”
They only answered, “Little Liar.”
