The team were very shocked to hear the very sad news that Derek Loveless from Studland passed away this week.
Derek was very well known in the village and worked for the National Trust.
The team worked on many incidents with Derek over the years on the beach and no incident or situation was a problem for him.
He helped us on several occasions when we got stuck on the beach.
He will be sadly missed by us all in the Coastguard and our thoughts are with his family , friends and the community of Studland.
