Exmouth sea service pays tribute to rescuers
A sea service paying tribute to rescuers was held at Exmouth’s RNLI boathouse on Sunday.
Reverend Stephen Langford said it had been a ‘privilege’ to take the service, honoring those who were willing to put themselves at risk, saving others.
He said: “I have a huge amount of respect for the RNLI. My father was a volunteer coastguard and we lived in the coastguard cottages just outside Abbotsbury where I was brought up on the heroic stories of those who had saved lives at sea.
“As an adult, I was Baptist minister at one of Orkneys North Islands and I learnt that no matter what the weather the RNLI will always come for you in an emergency.”
