Fleetwood's RNLI volunteers are set for a new era of lifesaving with the arrival of their new lifeboat.
The £2.2 boat provides the town with one of the fastest vessels in the RNLI fleet.
It's been named Kenneth James Pierpoint, a Royal Air Force pilot who died aged just 20 in August 1942.
The purchase of the boat was only made possible thanks to a donation to the RNLI in Kenneth's memory by his sister Kathleen Mary Pierpoint.
Fleetwood's last lifeboat, named William Street, has been in service since 1989.
In that time, crews have carried out 528 rescues, and saved the lives of hundreds of people.
