Tim Farron boards hovercraft in quest for tide of support
Liberal Democrat leader addressed supporters on the beach at Burnham-on-Sea.
Tim Farron took to a hovercraft as he launched the Liberal Democrats’ General Election push in the South West.
Mr Farron used a campaign visit to Burnham-on-Sea to board a rescue hovercraft in the Lib Dem target seat.
The Lib Dem leader spoke to volunteers at the Burnham Area Rescue Boat charity which operates two life-saving rescue hovercrafts.
Mr Farron then addressed activists on the beach before boarding the craft for a journey along the sands at low tide.
“That was great, and it shows they are the fourth emergency service,” Mr Farron said afterwards.
