LYME Regis RNLI inshore lifeboat assisted a broken down fishing vessel off West Bay.

The boat broke down at around 8.30pm on Friday (MAY 16) and was towed in to West Bay harbour.

Earlier in the day, a pair of kayakers were towed to safety after calling for help off Peverel Point, Swanage.

The incident happened around 1.30pm.

A rib was nearby and kept the kayakers under observation until the Swanage RNLI inshore lifeboat arrived and towed them to shore.

'Fishing boat needs assistance'
The article then goes on to say that the assistance has been provided although the headline appears to say that the assistance hasn't!

In a remarkable turn of events a motorist also needed assistance when they reported whist appeared to be a flat tyre. The emergency services were called and the AA rushed to the scene.

The repair was made and the motorist went on their way.
