Lyme Regis RNLI crew find only driftwood and return to base

After an extensive sweep of the area driftwood was found at Broad Ledge. A lifeboat crew member was landed on the Ledge rocks and the driftwood was identified as the mystery floating object.
The incident was recorded as a false alarm with good intent. The lifeboat launched at 5.48 and returned at 6.45pm
