Damage

On the local news it is reported that the Aldeburgh LB station has been trashed. The boat and launching gear is untouched, the collection box and tea kitty taken and looking on tv the station is in a terrible mess.
If they catch these a’holes would like to see them being given a big shovel and told to move a couple of thousand tons of gravel from one end of the beach to the other.

It may be the seagulls that did it. My wife was attacked last summer eating her fish and chips near there. However if it was people then the scrotes deserve the 12 mile limit test. I am sure it won't be a problem getting anyone to take them 12 miles out.

I dont think the seagulls would take the collection box and the tea kitty Bill, as Doctor Watson would say, "Sherlock I think its human A-Holes."

As a firm believer in Karma, if the thieves are caught then put them in a small boat fifty miles offshore in the first available howling gale with a radio tuned to the local coastguard and, when they call for help tell them that help is not available as the lifeboat station has been trashed by vandals.

Whoever the toe rags are, they need to be taught a hard lesson. Scrubbing the bottom of the boat with toothbrushes after a launch and recovery would be a start.

Now that Aldeburgh is totally up scale is this a case of original local youths bored and in need of beer/drug money and we don't care or new import youths bringing their privilege and we are special and don't care what we do?
Now that the temporary residents must outnumber the originals is this a sign of things to come. Southwold next maybe?

... or alternatively, take them out on a few rough weather rescues - with spew buckets around their necks - so that it brings home to them the enormity of their foolishness!

PS... film the whole episode and drop them off about a half mile from land, so they can swim home...

It's a bit mind boggling that anyone could do this. Can't quite get my head around it.

It makes you sick but that's the world we live in. If caught will probably get off with a warning or a light sentence or otherwise. It makes me proud to support the cause and its achievements.

Keel hauling could be beneficial! But God says forgive.

When they are identified and the next time they are drugged up or pissed up and dial 999 and ask for help tell the basr--ds the ambulance is trashed and there isnt another one and let them die . it is all they deserve if a segull give it ten bore.

I am Lifeboat Operations Manager at Aldeburgh. Thankfully they did not touch the boat or any of the equipment. We had just emptied the collection boxes and banked the proceeds so they got nothing there. Our Tea and Coffee Kitty was taken along with £80 in change that we had prepared for the shop. The damage was quite considerable. Locked desks were smashed open and a storage area door was kicked in along with the window that was broken.
Local people have been most generous and we would like to thank everyone for their support.

Very sad, and I hope they catch them. (Cloud)
