Volunteers scrambled during training.
Volunteers of the RNLI lifeboat crew in Lyme Regis were scrambled after receiving two emergency calls whilst out training yesterday (Thursday).
The crew was already out at sea taking part in a training session when they were called out.
The first call was to rescue two young men after their leisure boat had broken down three miles south of West Bexington.
The lifeboat towed the vessel to the safety of West Bay harbour.
The crew then responded to a second call at around 7pm following reports of a swimmer in difficulties off the beach at Seaton.
The lifeboat was stood down after the swimmer reached the shore .
