The Initial Response Team, the IRT, was tasked to locate a 9.5M motor vessel that had broken down 1 nautical mile south east of Lyme Regis harbour. The vessel was taking a party of 9 divers from a Midlands diving club to a diving area 5 nautical miles to the south east. Once again, the first reports suggested the vessel was to the west of Lyme Regis. The vessel was located by the coastguard and taken undertow by a local dive boat. The vessel was brought into harbour. The vessel was equipped with the necessary safety equipment and a VHF radio.
