STAFF from six emergency services will be demonstrating their skills during Lyme Regis' and Charmouth Lifeboat Week - starting July 26.

Coastguards, ambulance crews, fire and rescue service, the police, RNLI Lifeguards and the lifeboat will be performing a series of exercises on Emergency services Day, July30.

The coastguard helicopter from Portland, and Weymouth's two and a half million pound RNLI all weather lifeboat, will also be joining the demonstrations.

Among the exercises will be cliff and sea rescues, a rescue from mud and a car fire.

The day will begin at 9.30am with a convoy of vehicles, including the lifeboat, through the town to the seafront.

Lifeboat crew members Martin Croad, Tim Edwards and Elliot Herbert have been working closely with the RNLI Guild and lifeboat station personnel to organise the week's activities.
