The outside of the temporary station, near Marine Lake, has been damaged with an eye-catching image of the crew torn in half.

One of the RNLI’s vehicles has also been damaged.

A RNLI spokesman is asking people who saw what happened to come forward.

He said: “It appears that the picture was the cause of the damage to the truck.

“We were using the station on September 23 and nothing was noticed.

“The weather has been fine since and so we are wondering if it is vandalism.

“Someone appears to have torn the picture down, damaging the truck in doing so.

“Otherwise there is no discernible reason for the picture falling down.”

Anyone with information about the damage is asked to call Glyn Hayes on 07774 181418.
