11th April 2019 - 22:37
A longer than expected night ensued after we were paged to back up our colleagues, Portland Bill Coastguard Rescue Team. The volunteers were tasked to 5 young people who reported themselves stuck amongst rocks on steep ground below the Young Offenders Institute on Portland. They were located from above their position very quickly but it soon became apparent that accessing that position was not going to be easy. With thick, heavy undergrowth between us and them on a cold night, a team was dispatched to try and approach from below.
The team eventually made contact with the casualties who were in two separate locations, one group a little higher and on steeper terrain. A rope system was put in place to allow all 5 to be lowered to safer ground and a second team. They were then walked out to an awaiting paramedic. The youngsters were left with Dorset Police, we were tucked up again shortly after 0300.

11th April 2019 - 21:31
The full team were paged at 21:31 and asked to assist Dorset Police with a concern for welfare report. The first informant stated they had last seen the potential casualty near to the sea and were worried they may have entered. Weymouth Lifeboat ILB were also tasked to the incident.

The team assembled on the seafront near to the Kings Statue. A team member met with the first informant who gave a description of the female casualty, and a last known location. After a very quick search of the immediate location, a person matching the description of the casualty was located and confirmed as the potential casualty. This news was then passed to the NMOC and Weymouth Lifeboat ILB.

One of our female officers waited with the uninjured casualty until Dorset Police arrived. With the casualty safely in the care of Dorset Police, the team were allowed to stand down.
