28th May 2020 - 06:15
The team were tasked to assist our colleagues at Portland Bill Coastguard Rescue Team, Dorset Police, Weymouth Lifeboat ALB, ILB and CG Rescue Helicopter 187 with the onging search for a missing snorkeller.
A shore line search of the West side of Porland was undertaken by Wyke. This is an arduous and very difficult area to search. With very favourable conditions most of this was done at shore level on foot. Some inaccesible areas were searched from the cliff top using binoculars. Wyke were stood down shortly after 1400 today.

The team were paged at 1920 to 3 females stuck in thick undergrowth on the cliffs close to Osmington Mills. Once on scene it was decided to access their position from the top despite the fact they had climbed from the bottom. A path was cleared before a team member escorted them 1 at a time to safety.

The full team along with Portland Bill Coastguard Rescue Team were paged at 2016 to reports of a dog stuck on very steep ground just below our station at Bincleaves. A passer bye had somehow climbed to the dogs position but could not recover himself and the dog to safety. It was decided to deploy a cliff rescue technician from above on a technical rope rescue system. After gaining access through a fence and heavy vegetation, our cliffman was lowered over the edge to recover both the good samaritan and yorkshire terrier back to the top unharmed.
