El pasado día 1 de Mayo dejo de prestar servicio el MRCC de Great Yarmouth en Inglaterra, la responsabilidad operacional pasa al Centro de Coordinación del Humber, más al norte, con el apoyo del MRCC del Tamesis que está al sur de Great Yarmouth.
Chief Coastguard Peter Dymond said:
«Safety is our top priority and I am confident that the same high quality search and rescue service will be maintained throughout. There will be no reduction in front line rescue resources.
«The availability of lifeboats, rescue helicopters, Coastguard Rescue Teams and other rescue facilities in the area will be unaffected.
‘I am very grateful to the staff at Yarmouth Coastguard, who have served this region and the local communities here with great dedication and professionalism over many years. I am delighted that several of them are planning to stay with HM Coastguard in new roles, in different locations around the UK’
