Mark Colley, aged 57, who was at the helm of the lifeboat for 14 years, retired from that role at the age of 55 and has now became a deputy launching authority (DLA) with the crew’s management team.

Mark, a carpenter with a total of 21 years as a crew member, said: “The role of DLA is an important one in the management structure at the lifeboat station and I feel I can put my sea-going and search and rescue experience, in particular, to good use with other members of the crew.”
