RNLI Thames Call-Outs Rise

Lifeboat crews on the Thames dealt with a third more call-outs this summer than last year - being launched 329 times.

The stations at Chiswick and Tower are again the busiest stations in the country.

The most common calls are to capsized rowers, boats on fire and people who've fallen in.
