UK Coastguard requested the launch of Seahouses inshore and all-weather lifeboats at 1.22pm today (Thursday) to assist a dive boat which had reported nine missing/overdue divers.
The vessel was approximately 3½ miles off the coast between Seahouses and Beadnell, and had come from Eyemouth.
A local fishing vessel had also come to assist in the search.
All nine divers surfaced soon after and were safely accounted for.
