A new independent lifeboat service is launching in Jersey today.

The Jersey Lifeboat Association has been formed by former RNLI crew members following a breakdown in relations between the charity and the Jersey volunteers last year.

The new group say they intend to purchase a new boat and will begin fundraising for it straight away.

The RNLI is still operating in Jersey with a new crew.
