RIB comes to the rescue before Lyme Regis lifeboat crew carry pair to the safety of the harbour
Two people who went overboard from a speedboat when their engine failed were rescued on Saturday afternoon at Lyme Regis.
They were picked up by an RIB – a rigid inflatable boat – before being transferred to the Lyme Regis RNLI lifeboat.
The lifeboat was launched at 3.05pm after being called to the incident off Monmouth beach.
Both people were unhurt and taken by the lifeboat to the safety of Lyme Regis harbour. The lifeboat crew, who also towed the speedboat into harbour, returned at 3.55pm.
