The IRT was tasked to assist the RNLI with search and recovery of a vessel that had discharged a red emergency distress flare to the east of Lyme Regis harbour. The small 4m open motor boat had fouled their propeller on a drift net some 40 metres from shore, close to Broad Ledge. The boat and its two female occupants were towed into the safety of the harbour by a local fishing boat. The occupants were safe and well.
