Clyde Coastguard PA16

Location: UK » Scotland » PA

Under current UK government proposals, Clyde Coastguard will close with the loss of more than 30 jobs. Aberdeen will be Scotland’s only 24-hour emergency station with a daytime operation being conducted from either Shetland or Stornoway.

Greenock and Inverclyde Labour MSP Duncan McNeil challenged the Government to think again over its ‘daft and dangerous cuts’.

He said: “The Clyde coastguard centre is responsible for the longest and most challenging stretch of coastline, has the fifth highest levels of incidents in the UK and has the highest level of search and rescue hours in Scotland.”
