A YACHT entangled with an anchor chain and a man who injured himself during the Charmouth Challenge fun run sparked alert for coastguards.
Shortly after midday on Friday, July 4, the Jenny Irene yacht made a mayday broadcast after becoming entangled with an anchor chain in Lyme Bay.
The coastguard rescue helicopter kept a watch over the yacht until the Torbay lifeboat arrived on scene and towed the yacht to safety.
The coastguards assisted the man until the ambulance arrived on scene.
