2011 Incident #46 22.10.11 1755UTC #5308

The Initial Response Team, the IRT, was tasked to investigate reports of a person in the water near the Lyme Regis harbour entrance. The RNLI lifeboat was also launched to conduct a detailed search. Despite an extensive search nobody was found and nothing suspicious located. It is thought the member of the public who raised the 999 alarm had mistaken a mooring buoy in the swell as a possible casualty. It was a recorded as a false alarm with good intent.

The Coastguard and the RNLI will always investigate such reports to ensure that there is nobody in danger. The Coastguard would continue to encourage all members of the people to contact them in the event that they see anything untoward in the sea.
