The Swanage lifeboat offered to take police to the scene, but when two officers turned up at the jetty with a defibrillator they were ordered off

In another case revealed today, two Dorset police officers carrying life-saving equipment were ordered not to board a lifeboat to reach a suspected heart attack victim because they were not trained in sea survival.
