The IRT was tasked to a report that three teenagers were sitting on the roof of a derelict radar station 80 metres below the cliff edge at Stonebarrow. The cliff together with the disused radar station collapsed in the 1970s. The boys had also lit a small fire nearby. The WWII radar station is extremely difficult to access and the concern was that the fire could very quickly spread with the surrounding dry undergrowth. Any fire would immediately trap the boys in an dangerous situation. The fire was put out and the boys were asked to leave the area due to the inherent risks. Fortunately, as it was a minor incident, it was unnecessary to call the local fire service as they were busy rescuing a seagull from a roof in Charmouth.
