An annual blessing of boats service has taken place.

About 200 people joined in an open air service on the Cobb in Lyme Regis on Sunday.

Led by Lyme Regis vicar the Rev. Jane Skinner and hosted by the RNLI, the service took place at the lifeboat station.

The volunteer lifeboat crew, the British Legion, coastguards, the sailing, powerboat and gig clubs were all represented.

Lyme Regis Town Band and the Harbour Voices choir took part in the service and Sophie Vernon, whose parents are members of the gig club, read her poem called 'Salt.'

The service concluded with wreaths being taken to be laid at sea by the lifeboat crew.
