IRT tasked to investigate a large red object on the beach between Lyme Regis and Charmouth. The IRT proceeded to the first informants home address where she has a clear view of the beach. Coastguards were unable to immediately identify the object. Due to the high tide, the IRT were unable to get to the location from Lyme Regis and proceeded to Charmouth to gain access. The IRT identified the object as a large red plasic drum which had contained hydraulic fluid. The container was removed to prevent any further calls.
