Seafaring pal for 'Tommy' is set to be unveiled in Seaham Marina
 

Work has started on a statue to commemorate the Royal National Lifeboat Institution crew members at Seaham .
The steel statue will be a brother to the famous Tommy solider sculpture in the area.
The same artist who created Tommy, Ray Lonsdale, has been commissioned to design the statue in tribute to the RNLI crew who served the Seaham lifeboat station between its opening in 1870 and its closure in 1979.
The depiction of a life-size lifeboat crew member featured in period dress will be installed permanently at Seaham Harbour Marina.
