By James Morton »
LIFEBOAT crew from Dorset have been deployed to Cumbria to help with rescues during the devastating floods.
Two volunteer crew members from RNLI headquarters in Poole and two from Swanage lifeboat station arrived in Cockermouth at around 10pm last night (November 19).
Floodwaters have risen to more than eight feet in the town centre, with torrents gushing through the streets at speeds of up to 25 knots.
John Deas and Gavin Steeden, from the Swanage station, and Glen Mallen and Lee Firman, from Poole HQ, are Dorset's RNLI men in the flood zone".
Good on you, guys.
