Devon resort gets lifeboat after appeal

Help

A south Devon resort has launched its own lifeboat after the last vessel was taken out of service amid safety concerns.

Hope Cove's lifeboat was removed in 2008 by the owners, the Maritime and Coastguard Agency (MCA).

Now a newly refurbished lifeboat has been purchased by local people who created a charity to run it.
