The lifejacket clinic held on Saturday by the RNLI Community Safety Team was a huge success  

We did check 39 jackets of which many had the usual minor faults of no crutch straps, no spray hoods or had expired dated accessories, but 3 were condemned as completely useless and one in particular not only had a rusty bottle and rust abraised bladder through the same, but the manual firing mechanism had become completely detached and was just hanging inside, there is no doubt this would not have worked and could have proved fatal in an actual going overboard situation.
