The decision comes after 25 RNLI volunteers in St Helier handed their notice in this morning.

It follows a meeting between the boats Coxswain, Andy Hibbs and the RNLI yesterday where he was asked to stand down.

Mark Le Cornu from Jersey Fire and Rescue has told ITV News that “islanders will continue to be safe as they always have been”.

He added: “we will continue to support Jersey Coastguard until the facility is no longer required”.
