wo lifeboatmen have been fired from the RNLI and four others have walked out in protest in a row over naked women on mugs, it has been claimed.
Ben Laws, who has 15-years of experience volunteering for the charity, and colleague Joe Winspear were allegedly sacked over the phone on Tuesday.

It is believed a senior female colleague found the mugs at their HQ in Whitby, North Yorkshire and then reported them.
They are said to have given the mugs to each other as secret Santa presents and one had Mr Winspear’s head superimposed on a naked woman’s body.
Initially they were told to remove the mugs and that they would not face any further action.
However, they were then told they would have to go through a disciplinary hearing which involved looking through their WhatsApp messages.
