The children from Embleton's Vincent Edwards Primary SchooL enjoyed the visit from the lifeboat.

The vessel, which is from the Lifeboat Collage, has been used at Craster Lifeboat Station for capsize training.

Local operations manager Kevin Brown said: “It’s great to be able to let the children get into the boat and see the equipment for themselves. You can talk about a lot of what goes on in the RNLI, but if you let the children see for themselves, especially the younger ones, I think they take it in better.
