HM Coastguard, Bridlington YO15

Location: UK » North East » YO

The government is currently consulting on proposals to close ten of the country’s eighteen coastguard stations. The Humber Maritime Rescue Co-ordination Centre, based in Bridlington, is one of five nationwide that will remain open but have its hours slashed. Under the proposals the station, which covers Scarborough, will only operate from 9am to 7pm, and two-thirds of coastguards will be axed.

Responsibility for co-ordinating night rescues would pass to one of only three 24 hour stations, hundreds of miles away in Aberdeen, Dover or Southampton.
