RNLI crew puts to sea after reports that someone was in the water

Lyme Regis lifeboat launched in rough sea conditions on Friday (October 12) to a report of a person in the water near Chesil beach.

The volunteer crew responded to a call from the Coastguard following a report that someone was in difficulties.

The crew were contacted by the Coastguard at 3.35pm. Half an hour later the crew was stood down when a local coastguard response team reported it was not a person in the water.

The alarm had been raised by a member of the public and was recorded as a false alarm with good intent.
