Coastguard issue safety advice


If you are out enjoying our coastline today:

 

Stay away from areas where surging waves could sweep you off your feet, or hit rocks and cause a huge amount of spray

 

Be careful of tides; it’s easy to become cut off and strong wind conditions will mean that the sea will reach higher levels than expected

 

Heed warnings from lifeguards

 

James Instance for the UK Coastguard says:

 

“What should be an enjoyable experience could so easily take a traumatic turn, so please do listen to warnings and stay at a safe distance from the water.”
