The full team were paged just after midnight to relieve our colleagues West Bay Coastguard Rescue Team and Lyme Regis Coastguard. They had spent five or so ours assisting Dorset Police with an incident at Burton Bradstock. On route provisions were purchased on request of the Westbay OIC. Wyke duly delivered these to our hungry team mates. Fortunately the situation had resolved itself as we arrived. We provided some lighting and the goodie bag before returning to station just before 0200 hrs.

Our third tasking of the weekend saw us head to Dorchester and make the HLS safe for R175. After the casualty from the below incident was airlifted from the scene.
The below taken from Lulworth Coastguard Rescue Team pFB page.

Solent Coastguard the team this afternoon after 999 calls reported screams for help at the bottom of a cliff at Arish Mell, in the Lulworth army ranges.
Reports suggested a casualty had fallen from the cliff.
The team met with a land ambulance at Lulworth Cove and quickly proceeded to Arish Mell.
On arrival, on scene range wardens provided an update that the casualty was in-fact a paraglider who had made an emergency landing and had ended up on rocks surrounded by water, sustaining multiple injuries.
The team made their way to the casualty and assisted the paramedics with first aid. Due to the location of the casualty and the extremely hazardous area, the team decided that the safest way of extraction would be via air.
Rescue 175 from Lee-on-the-Solent arrived on scene and winched their paramedic and stretcher down.
While the casualty was made ready for hospital, other team members prepared a HLS. The helicopter landed until the casualty was made ready for extraction.
Shorty after, the helicopter returned to scene and winched their paramedic and casualty aboard.
The aircraft flew to Dorchester where they were met by flank station Wyke Coastguard CRT who helped with transfers to the hospital.
