Lyme Regis Lifeboat called to help three people on board a motor cruiser

Lyme Regis lifeboat was called to help motor boat which was reported to be spinning in circles near Seaton on Thursday evening.

The lifeboat entered Axmouth Harbour to discover that the 30 foot motor cruiser with three people on board were safe and well. They were preparing their boat for mooring by getting ready the fenders which caused the vessel to spin.

Lyme Regis helm Mark Colley said: “It was good to see that the boat and people on board were well equipped and that everyone was safe and well.

“The coastguard were alerted by a concerned bystander and it is better to be safe than sorry.”=
