A LYME Regis teenager is to take part in an historic radio broadcast, charting his progress and experiences.

Ritchie Durrant, 17, who joined the RNLI crew on his birthday on November 9, is taking part in a year long project with BBC Radio Solent.

The 'One Hundred Lives' keeps in touch with a group of listeners from many walks of life and keeps track on their experiences.

The radio station will be talking to Ritchie at various stages about his lifeboat duties and other areas of his life.
