Two men rescued by Lyme lifeboat

Broken down fishing boat towed to West Bay

Two men aboard a broken down fishing boat were rescued by the volunteer crew of Lyme Regis lifeboat on Friday.

Coastguards at Portland alerted the RNLI, which launched the Spirit of Loch Fyne at 8.49pm.

The 11ft fishing vessel was drifting half a mile east of West Bay. The lifeboat towed it to the safety of the harbour.
