Scarborough RNLI members will hold their annual memorial service at St Mary’s Church on Sunday 4 December.

The service marks the 62nd anniversary of one of the worst disasters in the lifeboat’s history when three crew members died after their lifeboat overturned in a storm.

Every year since then the anniversary of the tragedy (8 December) has been commemorated by a church service.
