Lifeboat crew answer 25th call of the year

LYME Regis lifeboat crew answered their 25th emergency call of the year on Friday afternoon. 

The crew were called to Axmouth harbour at about 1pm after reports that two kayakers had fallen overboard and were clinging on to the vessel.

Beer Coastguards also attended the scene and found the man and woman slowly making their way ashore.

They reached the shore just as the lifeboat arrived on scene. The crew checked they were okay before standing down.

Coastguards also met the couple to offer safety advice and ensure they had the right equipment.
