Lifeboat crew ‘log on’… twice

One of the logs is retrieved from the water

LYME Regis lifeboat crew answered two calls on Bank Holiday Friday, following reports of a kayak in difficulty and an unspecified object in the water.

In both cases – near Charmouth and off Axmouth – the items turned out to be tree logs.

Both logs were retrieved by the lifeboat crew, one taken on board and the larger one towed back to Lyme Regis harbour.

The volunteer crew launched at 11am and returned to harbour at 12.30pm.

A lifeboat spokesman said: “In both cases it was better to be safe than sorry after the reports were received.”

The RNLI continues to advise the public not to use the water for exercise or recreational purposes during the current lockdown restrictions.
