The Lyme Regis Coastguard team was asked in November to help film a documentary about the extreme weather that we have all experienced in 2012. The team was filmed rescuing the presenter, Miranda Krestovnikoff from the mud at a landslip in Charmouth. This is the same location that we have carried out a number of mud rescues of the last 36 months. The rescue, even in a ‘controlled environment’ was extremely physical and difficult. It really does highlight the hazard and risks associated with the mud and quicksand along the Jurassic Coast.
