Two boys were helped to safety yesterday afternoon (Saturday, February 22) by a Lyme Regis RNLI crew member after their inflatable boat deflated in the town’s harbour.
The lifeboat crew was alerted at 4.55pm.
Crew member Rich Tilley rowed the lifeboat station's X-boat - a ten foot inflatable - to pontoons in the harbour to collect two of the three boys involved - aged 13 and 14.
The third boy was already ashore.
The boys were said to be 'rather wet and apologetic but otherwise unhurt.'
