Whitby RNLI posted on their Facebook page: "We have made the final decision to hold another virtual flag weekend this year.

"We feel that while there is still an element of doubt it would be difficult to plan an event and our priority is keeping our crew members as safe as possible so that they can continue to save lives at sea.

"This year’s online event will take place on August 7-8, with loads of great lifeboat content for you to enjoy and quizzes and games to take part in.

"We would love to hear from you if you have any fundraising ideas or if you want to be involved in our virtual event.

"Last year was a great success and we’d like to thank you all for your continued support.

"We look forward to next year when we hope to be able to put on a great display for you all and be out and about meeting all of our fantastic community."
