Dad and daughter Lee and Eleanor Jackson went out on their final call-out together for Staithes and Runswick RNLI crew, just as they were packing up her belongings for her move to Whitby!

The boat was launched at noon on September 30 to a 21ft angling boat which had suffered engine failure four-and-a-half miles north of Staithes.

The vessel was located and towed to Whitby.

The Staithes and Runswick lifeboat returned to station at 3pm.

It just happened to be the day that crew member Eleanor was moving to Whitby and will transfer to Whitby lifeboat crew.

Just as her and her dad, helmsman Lee, were packing the removal van, the pagers were activated – certainly a memorable last day!
