Stay Clear in bad weather

When we get stormy weather in this country we have a fascination with it.  This often puts people and members of the emergency services at risk.

It is unusual for bad weather in June but watching the TV last night, they showed reporters and the public in situations which were dangerous with large waves crashing over sea defences and jetties.

During bad weather, please stay clear of any area which has water coming over the top of it, there is a risk you could be dragged into the sea. 

Remember if you see someone in trouble on the coast, cliffs or out to see, dial 999 and ask for the Coastguard.
