Please respect the coastline
It’s been a busy day today for our coastguard rescue teams.
Many people have been enjoying the English coastline following the change in Government guidelines, but not everybody is being responsible on the water.
We’re seeing a large number of incidents involving kayakers, jet skiers and kite surfers getting into trouble.
Now, more than ever, people need to respect the coastline. Coronavirus hasn’t gone away and your choices might put frontline responders at risk.
However experienced you are, the sea can catch you out and the majority of beaches are not currently lifeguarded. Please take extra care in these extraordinary times.
