LIFEBOAT SCRAMBLED: Sidmouth Lifeboat was tasked to help four people aboard a stranded speedboat which had broken down in Ladram Bay on Sunday, May 13.

The lifeboat crew later handed over the tow to Lyme Regis RNLI rescuers and the vessel was towed to safety.
HOME HOPE: Plans to remove outbuildings and construct a single-storey home on land adjacent to 119 Woolbrook Road, Sidmouth, won the backing of civic leaders.
Sidmouth Town Council Planning Committee members supported the bid when they met last Wednesday.
The district council will consider this view when it decides the fate of proposals.
PET PLEA: Sidmouth’s school pupils have been invited to join forces with the Dogs Trust, the UK’s largest dog welfare charity, in calling for owners to clean up after their pets.
The charity is backing the Paws up for Poop Scoop campaign as part of National Poop Scoop week, from June 11 to 17.
The cause hopes pupils highlighting the importance of cleaning up after pets will encourage dog owners to back the campaign.
Youngsters who display a promotional poster and send a photograph to the charity will receive free t-shirts for all their class.
