The Initial Response Team, the IRT, was tasked to investigate ‘persons’ cut off by the rising tide to the east of Lyme Regis. The whole area was searched and the people on the beach were asked to leave whilst the Coastguard helicopter was used to search the foreshore and the cliffs. No casualties were found. The Coastguard have recorded this call as a ‘false alarm with good intent’.
