LYME Regis lifeboat launched in rough sea conditions on Friday, October 12 to a report of a person in the water near Chesil Beach.

The volunteer crew responded to a call from the coastguard following a report of a person in difficulties.

The crew were contacted by the coastguard at 3.35pm and launched in heavy seas during Storm Callum.

Half an hour later the crew were stood down when a local coastguard response team reported it was not a person in the water.

The alarm had been raised  by a member of the public and was recorded as a false alarm with good intent.
