The States of Alderney have issued the following statement:
Despite reports on social media, there is not a Jersey registered yacht within Braye Harbour.
A patrol of the moorings was made by a member of the harbour team. All vessels in the harbour were registered as per their application as Guernsey registration.
We would respectfully ask that such reports are directed to the Harbour Office.
False reports detract from the watch keeping duties of Alderney Coast Guard, who are currently charged with maintaining our border against international vessels.We thank you for your cooperation.
