Rough Seas - safety advice

A drive a long the sea front this morning showed how stormy it was with gusty winds and high seas.

Watching the morning news, one of their reporters was carrying out a live report on the weather on a sea front  with large waves breaking over the wall which could have put the reporter at risk.

Breaking waves can be dangerous as there can be a dragging effect as the water falls back towards the sea.

Our advice is to stay clear of sea walls, break waters and the beach when conditions are poor. "Wave Dodging" looks fun but can be dangerous, watch from a distance.

See someone in trouble along the coast......dial 999 and ask for the Coastguard.
