Beach lifeguard Richie Heard spends summers working in north Devon and winters saving refugees in the Aegean Sea.

He spoke during a visit home from the Greek island of Lesbos, where he is operations manager with Refugee Rescue.

He said the sound of crying babies, stranded with their parents in boats on rocks, never leaves him.
