A VITAL Burnham rescue charity was featured on a national television programme on June 15.

Burnham Area Rescue Boat (BARB) was visited by BBC1’s Real Rescues, and presenters Nick Knowles and Louise Minchin, with the programme showing clips of the charity conducting two beach rescues.

Pilot Dave Bailey, who was interviewed for the programme, said: “I explained why the hovercrafts play an important role in keeping the coastline around Burnham safe and also discussed several typical rescues.”
