A LYME Regis teenager was reported to have injured himself after he threw a knife – and it bounced off a wall and hit his leg.

Police, ambulance and coastguards were called out at 2am on Wednesday, July 7, but could not find the 17-year-old.

The youth was later found safe and well at his grandmother’s house following a search and it is thought the story about the injuries were made up.
