The new Eyemouth RNLI Shannon class lifeboat will be officially launched as the RNLB Helen Hastings in September and is due to arrive in Eyemouth in December after trials.

Helen, who lived in Stocksfield, left the majority of her estate to the RNLI when she died in 2016, with the request that a lifeboat be built and named after her.
