Lyme lifeboat week in full swing

Visitors flock to Lyme Regis for an action packed week of events.

Crowds turned out in force to kick start the celebrations for Lyme Regis lifeboat week

An estimated 30,000 packed into the resort over the weekend to see a spectacular display by the Red Arrows as well as enjoy some tasty treats.

A hot dog stall manned by the lifeboat crew proved popular with visitors - selling a record 1,400 hot dogs.

Neville Causley said: “I have never known us sell so many hot dogs on the first day of Lifeboat week.”
