Lyme Regis RNLI lifeboat launched after report of two in trouble on inflatable
The volunteer crew at Lyme Regis launched the lifeboat on Thursday afternoon to reports of people in difficulty on an inflatable.
Lyme Regis RNLI lifeboat was launched at 12.54pm today (Thursday 13 August) following reports of two people in difficulties on an inflatable 600m off Freshwater Bay.
As the lifeboat crew arrived on scene it was clear the two people were safe and well and being assisted by the West Bay harbourmaster’s launch.
Coastguards then stood down the Lyme Regis lifeboat crew. This was the 34th call for help for the volunteers of Lyme Regis lifeboat so far this year.
