Men cut off by tide in Osmington sparks search parties

Coastguard

Search parties took to the coast last night after reports of two men cut off by the tide.

Wyke Coastguard CRT and Lulworth were alerted by Solent at 12.27am this morning (Saturday), who deployed two search parties in the Osmington area from the Smugglers Inn car park.

Weymouth Lifeboat was also launched to carry out a shoreline search.

Shortly after starting the search, they found four men who were escorted back to the car park and checked over by teams.

A spokesman for Wyke Coastguard CRT said:

“Thankfully the men were none the worse off for their ordeal. Wyke remained on scene until their lift arrived. Lulworth were stood down back on station for 2am.”
