Two people were rescued after being cut off by the tide.

Lyme Regis lifeboat launched yesterday, Tuesday afternoon, after reports that the couple had been cut off near Black Venn, between Lyme Regis and Charmouth.

The volunteer crew launched the lifeboat at 4.45pm and were on scene in 10 minutes later and assisted the Coastguard to ensure the safety of the people.

Murray Saunders, helm of the crew said: "We were glad to assist the Coastguard with this rescue and thankfully the people made it to safety. If in doubt, leaflets are available from the Tourist Information Centre and RNLI lifeboat shop explaining the risks of the changing tides."
