Lifeboat crew called to ‘children in trouble’

LYME Regis lifeboat launched on the afternoon of Thursday, October 10 to a report of a boat drifting with three children aboard.

The volunteer crew responded to a call from the coastguard to a report of a boat with three children being blown off shore near West Bay.

They were contacted by the coastguard at 3.49pm to assist a reported drifting boat. Twenty minutes later the crew had arrived on scene to find the children had made it safely to shore and all were safe and well.

The call came from a member of the public who thought the children were struggling against the wind.

If you see someone in trouble at the coast, call 999 and ask for the coastguard
