RNLI Lifeboat demonstration - Dungeness

This weekend we were lucky enough to see the Shannon class lifeboat - 'The Morrell' and Lifeboat B-766 (‘BBC Radio Cleveland’) give a brilliant demonstration of how to rescue a small fishing boat that was 'on fire' (actually it was more flares and smoked bombs!). The display started promptly at 2.00pm and I was in prime position to see both he launch on shingle and the two boats undertake the rescue.
