Life-saving volunteers are needed at the RNLI in Happisburgh.

Two recruitment open days will be held at the lifeboat station in Cart Gap Road, Happisburgh between 10am and 2pm on Saturday, March 18 and between 6pm and 8pm Tuesday, March 28.

People from all walks of life are needed to help crew the lifeboats, assist with launch and recovery when the team goes out on service, and work in the shop.

Charlotte Siely, one of the helms at Happisburgh, said: 'Only 10pc of the RNLI's new recruits come with professional maritime experience. We are looking for anyone aged 17 years and over who is living or working within 10 minutes of the lifeboat station.

'You need to be willing to volunteer some of your free time to join, which is what I believe to be one of the most exhilarating and rewarding voluntary services that is out there.'
