An independent group that saves lives at sea has launched an recruitment drive. 

Mundesley Lifeboat is looking for volunteers to help do everything from crew the rescue boat to fundraise. 

Brian Shaw, chairman, said: "The lifeboat is currently recruiting for volunteers in a number of areas, including crew, charity shop helpers, the friends fundraising committee and on the board of trustees.

"Crew are required to live or work in and around the Mundesley area and will undergo a medical and DBS check."

The Lifeboat, which is independent of the RNLI, was founded in 1972 after a drowning and near drowning of a husband and wife whilst sailing half a mile off the beach at Mundesley.
