During a joint training exercise with our West Bay colleagues, 2 young females were reported as being cut off by the rapidly incoming tide. The young people were seen walking between West Bay & the Freshwater camp site back just west of Burton Bradstock. Both the RNLI inshore lifeboat from Lyme and the Coastguard rescue helicopter from Portland were launched to assist. Fortunately, the girls had managed to make their own way safely through to Freshwater.
