FOUR people aboard a dinghy were towed to safety on Bank Holiday Monday by the volunteer crew of Lyme Regis lifeboat.
The four people had set off from Charmouth beach but had trouble with the engine and drifted nearly two miles off from Charmouth beach.
The lifeboat crew towed the boat and four people back to Charmouth beach where they were safe to recover their boat.
The crew launched at 2.15pm and returned to Lyme Regis lifeboat station 3pm.
The incident followed two emergency call outs the previous day and adds to what has so far been a busy year for the crew.
