2011 Incident #51 4.11.11 2212UTC #5470

Once again this week, the Initial Response team was tasked to a ‘shout’ inland. The coastguard was called to assist the other emergency services deal with 34vehicle traffic accident on the M5 at Taunton which claimed seven lifes. The Coastguard helicopter was also tasked to assist with the transfer of casualties to the nearest hospitals. Having been tasked some two hours after the initial incident the coastguard was asked to stand by, close to the scene, for two hours before returning to Lyme Regis in the early hours. The Coastguard team offers their thoughts and prayers to the families and friends of those who have been affected by this tragic incident.
