A Scottish Borders lifeboat station will close in September.
The RNLI today announced that the station in St Abbs, which has been in existence for more than a hundred years, will shut on the eighth of September despite a local campaign to keep it open. The RNLI says its station at Eyemouth, two miles away, can cover the area effectively with the addition of a new inshore lifeboat.
