Just look at the new Tewkesbury class lifeboat!!!

being a bit of a lifeboat anorak , I think you'll find they are actually from SARA - the Severn Area Rescue Association:

http://www.sara-rescue.org.uk/thefleet.htm

It was bugging me cos I knew it wasn't an RNLI boat. The RNLI are helping out in the floods, but they use mostly D class SIBs (or variants of them) for flood work.

Then I saw someone from SARA being interviewed on the BBC and it all became clear

Cheers

Chris

I think it's something to do with the phone they were taken on. They work OK if I take them with my digital camera.
