The Initial Response Team was tasked to investigate persons reported in the water off East Beach at Charmouth. An orange inflatable had also been reported as floating away from the scene. An extensive search was carried out by the RNLI inshore lifeboat and nothing was found. No one had subsequently been reported as missing and it is was assumed to be a false alarm with good intent.
