RNLI crew called out after speedboat breaks down off Golden Cap

Four people – two men and two women – were rescued by the volunteer RNLI crew of Lyme Regis lifeboat last night (Monday, May 6)) when their speedboat suffered engine failure.

The lifeboat was launched at 7.52pm and was on scene, 100metres south of Golden Cap, seven minutes later.

The crew towed the speedboat to the safety of West Bay Harbour, arriving at 8.22pm and returned to Lyme Regis at 8.50pm.

This was the sixth 'shout' for the Lyme Regis crew so far this year.
