Committed individuals who can respond to an emergency situation at a moment's notice are being sought by a charity.

Burnham-on-Sea’s RNLI branch is on the hunt for volunteers to complement its crew.

The team is interested in anyone who would be available during the day who lives or works close to the station, in Pier Street.

As well as going out on rescues, crew members also undergo regular training afloat and onshore, and additional specialist training is available throughout the year.

Deputy lifeboat press officer, Ian Brown, said: “Volunteers’ lifesaving work is essential, often difficult and sometimes dangerous.

“Shore crew provide a vital link in the chain by launching and recovering the lifeboat and making sure it is ready for the next call.

“If you are interested, please pop along to the station on a Wednesday evening for a chat.”
