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. !!!!!

Iam not sure who pays for all the kit and the lifeguards wages etc , Iam pretty sure the RNLI don't fund it all , I think we do .
