The operational results released this week by the RNLI have shown that Broughty Ferry had the busiest lifeboat crew in Scotland.

In all a total of 476 launches were recorded by Scottish lifeboats in June, July and August, with the volunteers of the Broughty Ferry station accounting for 43 of them.

That total was up 20 launches on last year. Dave martin, lifeboat operations manager at Broughty Ferry said: “It has been a very busy time for us due mainly to the good weather with more people using the water and we thank employers for allowing the volunteer crew time away from work to help people in distress.”
