Was I having a bad day or have I read that the receiver of wrecks has been disbanded due to government cut

Government is looking to save money as i understand it. It has already decided to save several £million by cutting the emergency stand by tug service vessels like the Anglian Monarch - I think the three of them go off station in September. There has also been a consultation (now closed) on cutting the number of coastguard stations from something like 12 to 4 and losing a big chunk of staff - that's likely to happen from next year. If the receiver of wreck stays after that, just to collect forms and pretend it's really importent, then that would be an absoulute farce.
