Crews from Lyme Regis, Exmouth and Sidmouth practice their life saving.

Four volunteer lifeboat crews – one each from the RNLI stations at Lyme Regis and Exmouth and two from the independent Sidmouth station – took part in an exercise lasting some three hours yesterday (Sunday, April 2).

The operation, officially known as a Multi Vessel Search Exercise, took place off Sidmouth and included towing and search patterns.

Brian Street, helm of the Lyme Regis RNLI lifeboat said: “This was a large and important exercise for everyone involved and I know we all found it a valuable experience.”
