The Royal National Lifeboat Institution (RNLI) station at Fleetwood, Lancashire, recently welcomed its newest inshore lifeboat into service.

Harbet replaces Mary Elizabeth Barnes, an inshore lifeboat that served with Fleetwood RNLI for 11 years.

The new lifeboat takes its name from Harold and Betsy Hollingsworth from Cheadle, Cheshire, who bequeathed £54,000 (US$75,400) to the RNLI for its acquisition.
