Why are lifeboat callouts going up?

Scotland's lifeboats have had another busy summer with over 430 call outs to emergencies around the country.

The RNLI say it was the second year in a row that it recorded so many launches.

The charity says it could be due to increased numbers of people holidaying at home instead of abroad, more leisure time and better weather.
