On November 28th 2011, the Government announced that it planned to scrap Portland's search-and-rescue helicopter. This helicopter serves some of Britain's most popular and perilous recreational waters and one of Europe's busiest shipping routes.
We believe that local knowledge is paramount to providing an effective and efficient emergency service at sea, where a few minutes are often the difference between life and death. This cut will cost lives.
We, the undersigned, call on the Government to reverse its decision to scrap the Portland search-and-rescue helicopter.
