I found this fascinating article today:
A man sparked a huge air and sea search by the RNLI and Coastguard costing more than £24,000 after falsely claiming he and a friend were lost at sea in a dinghy, a court heard.
A 21 year old, from Essex, made up to five 999 calls because "he wanted to check" if the coastguard operated a 24-hour service.
