LYME Regis lifeboat launched this afternoon (Tuesday) when two people cut off by the tide.

Lyme Regis lifeboat was requested to launch to assist the Coastguard with two people that were reported to have been cut off by the tide near Black Venn, between Lyme Regis and Charmouth.

The volunteers launched the lifeboat at 4.45pm and were on scene in 10 minutes later and assisted the Coastguard to ensure the safety of the people.

Murray Saunders, helm of the crew, said: ‘We were glad to assist the Coastguard with this rescue and thankfully the people made it to safety. If in doubt, leaflets are available from the Tourist Information Centre and RNLI lifeboat shop explaining the risks of the changing tides.”
