Three divers were rescued by the crew of the RNLI lifeboat from Lyme Regis when they got into difficulties off Charton Bay. The three men raised the alarm when the engine on their small speedboat broke down some two and a half miles from Lyme Regis at around 2100 on 5 June 2008. The men were picked up by the lifeboat and brought back, safe and well, to Lyme Regis lifeboat station. The lifeboat also towed their boat to safety. Once ashore the men were interviewed by coastguards and issued with safety advice.
