Lifeboat assists Coastguards to rescue the pair
Lyme Regis lifeboat was launched to assist Coastguards when two people were cut off by the tide near Black Venn, East of the town, yesterday afternoon (Tuesday, February 27).
The crew put to sea at 4.45pm and were on scene 10 minutes later.
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.
