HM Coastguard issues further warning to coastal visitors this weekend

Her Majesty’s Coastguard has been dealing with over 160 incidents at the coast today.

Many people have flocked to coastal hotspots, beaches and the sea throughout the UK to enjoy glorious weather but not everyone is following our safety messages and some people are taking unnecessary and dangerous risks, which has led to a high number of serious incidents.

Extra care and personal responsibility needs to be taken at all times as not only do your choices put you, your friends and family at risk but also our frontline responders and emergency service partners who are working round-the-clock to keep you safe.

Unfortunately, we are expecting another busy day on Sunday for our Coastguard Rescue Teams and search and rescue helicopters – so please pay attention, make sensible decisions and keep yourself safe by adhering to the Government’s Coronavirus guidance.

Remember that if you do get into trouble or see someone who is in danger, call 999 and ask for the Coastguard.
