Whilst on holiday in Croyde North Devon I saw 5 RNLI Mitsibushi L200's parked on the beach, two pickups and three very posh and tinted 4x4's. Reckon they alone cost more than the RNLI's £99,800 fuel bill.
If you multiply that across all the beaches the RNLI Lifeguard thats one hell of an outlay. !!!!!
