It’s not even been on its first call yet, but Bridlington’s new lifeboat has already been captured by a budding young artist.
Sixteen-year-old Lucy Shutt created the artwork of the Antony Patrick Jones, even though she has not yet been able to see the vessel in person.
She used a photo from the Free Press website to help make the picture, which was a Christmas present for her mum, Janice.
“It was quite a surprise,” said Janice, who lives in Keighley. “We watched the new boat arriving in November through the Free Press’ Facebook Live video.
“We had a lot of affection for the old boat, the Marine Engineer, and we were sorry to see it go but this was a lovely surprise for me.”
