If you are visiting your local coastline, please take care as coastal dangers are ever present. To reduce pressure on the NHS and emergency services, including HM Coastguard, we ask people to avoid activities that involve a significant degree of risk.
We’re in difficult times, but if you’re in trouble at the coast, we’re always here for you. In an emergency at sea or at the coast dial 999 and ask for the Coastguard.
