The Coastguard Initial Response Team, the IRT, was tasked to Dorset County Hospital, Dorchester to pick up a patient who had recently undergone an operation. The Coastguard was asked to return the patient to their home address in Lyme Regis. The severe wintry conditions had made the roads very difficult to pass. The Coastguard 4*4 vehicle was able to make the journey safely.
