RNLI lifeboat escorts broken down fishing boat back to shore
LYME Regis RNLI lifeboat were called out earlier today (October 24) after a fishing boat suffered engine failure.
The two men aboard the 18 foot vessel called for help as they became stationary off Abbotsbury when their engine broke down and wouldn’t restart.
The lifeboat was launched at 10.37am and as it approached the fishing boat, the men managed to restart their engine.
To ensure the safety of the two men, the crew aboard the lifeboat escorted the fishing vessel back in to West Bay harbour.
After making sure the vessel was back in West Bay, Lyme Regis RNLI returned to their station and were back by midday.
