Ian Pedrick and Richard Clarkson - who have almost 60 years of experience between them - used their own equipment to tow a car back from a cliff-edge. But the kind-hearted pair were horrified to discover they?d been sacked after breaching the coastguard code of conduct. Ian and Richard join us today to talk about their outrage, while MP Sarah Wollaston blasts the decision as an ?absolute disgrace?.

Former Tory and Change UK MP Sarah Wollaston has joined the Liberal Democrats.

The party announced tonight that they were ‘thrilled’ to have her on board.

Leader Jo Swinson said: ‘I am thrilled that Sarah has chosen to join the Liberal Democrats.

‘Sarah is a fierce campaigner who I have enjoyed working with in the campaign to stop Brexit and as one of the most respected Members of Parliament and brings real expertise to our team.

‘She is one of more than 40,000 people who have joined us since May in rejecting the politics of nationalism and populism, showing it is the Liberal Democrats who can deliver an alternative vision for our country.’

Chuka Umunna MP tweeted: ‘Absolutely delighted that the wonderful Dr Sarah Wollaston – hugely respected across the House of Commons and the country – has joined the Lib Dems family! This underlines that we are the biggest and strongest #Remain party in the UK.’
