Keep safe at the beach and coast
People are being warned to take care at the coast or risk tragic consequences. The warning comes after 14 people across the UK have sadly died while visiting the beach or coast in the past 10 days.
To keep safe you can:
- go to a beach supervised by a RNLI lifeguard
- always check the weather conditions and tide times before going out
- don’t use inflatables
- make sure your phone is fully charged in case you need to phone the emergency services
- be aware of rip currents and hidden depths in the sea that can’t easily be seen
