When it comes to broadband, it seems that a lifeboat crew based in a remote part of Yorkshire is not averse to taking matters into its own hands.

The full-time RNLI Humber lifeboat crew is a small community located at Spurn Point and as reported last week by the Yorkshire Post it is getting super-fast broadband courtesy of Fibrestream.

Work was carried out on the fibre optic service over the weekend and in a show of true community spirit the crew members helped to lay the fibre optic cable themselves.

Local youngsters assisted them as they dug the ground ready for the cable, which will help to deliver a high-speed connection of up to 100Mb.

Footage of the lifeboat crew members and their helpers digging the groundwork for the cable has been posted on YouTube.
