Be careful where you park your lifeboat

Getting a parking ticket is always frustrating, particularly if you are only a minute or two late in returning to your car. However, it’s generally only cars, vans and motorbikes that get issued with the fines.

So imagine the surprise of an emergency crew when they returned to their lifeboat to find a parking ticket attached to the covers.

The Atlantic 75 lifeboat, which was positioned on a trailer, had only been left unattended for a few minutes as crew members signed paperwork to have it decommissioned.

They were reportedly fuming when they discovered the fine, stating that it hadn’t even crossed their mind that they might get a ticket.

Fortunately the local council has now cancelled the fine and the crew can go back to saving lives without the fear of receiving a parking ticket for their efforts.
