RNLI: No Interview on Sacked Scarborough Coxwain

RNLI: No Interview on Sacked Scarborough Coxwain

Published by the Yorkshire Coast Radio News Team at 6:31am 30th April 2018. (Updated at 9:10am 30th April 2018)

The RNLI is still refusing our request for an interview after the sacking of the Coxwain of Scarborough Lifeboat.
 
We told you how the charity alleges Tom Clark took the boat out without the proper permissions  and without enough qualified crew.
 
Since then, a protest at the lifeboat was cancelled last weekend and a number of volunteers have resigned.
 
We've been asking for an interview for the last few weeks to ask questions about what happened at the time, as well as what's happening now and what's in place for the future.

The charity has sent us this statement:

"The RNLI has provided details of recent events at Scarborough lifeboat station on its website and, out of respect of our volunteers at the station, has nothing further to add.

We are working closely with staff and volunteers at the station to move forward. Everyone is keen to get back to business as usual and work together to continue to operate a safe and effective lifesaving service in Scarborough."
