Lifeboat called to another inflatables incident

LYME Regis lifeboat crew was launched on Thursday afternoon following reports of two people in difficulties on an inflatable 600m off Freshwater Bay, near Bridport.

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.

Inflatables are often designed to be used in swimming pools and not the sea. The RNLI advises that they should not be used in the sea, especially in windy conditions.
