The Royal National Lifeboat Institution flag is flying at half mast at the Lowestoft RNLI lifeboat station today (Thursday) in memory of former coxswain Thomas (Tommy) Knott who died last night (Wednesday).

Mr Knott served with the RNLI in Lowestoft for 22 years from 1956 and was Coxswain/Mechanic from 1968 to 1978, being awarded a bronze medal and a bronze second-service clasp for two gallant rescues.

He was a popular figure at the Royal Norfolk and Suffolk Yacht Club, where he lived and sadly died at the age of 94.
