Do you support the amended coastguard proposals?

With eight coastguard centres now set to close, do you back the government's latest proposals?

As expected, the government has announced changes to its proposals to modernise the coastguard following a damning report from the Transport Select Committee.

Under the amended proposals, eight coastguard stations are now earmarked for closure with each of the remaining 10 centres to operate a 24-hour service.

Stations that still face closure are: Swansea, Brixham, Clyde, Forth, Portland, Liverpool, Yarmouth and the Thames.
