BE sure to check the weather and tide times first so you don’t get caught out.

That’s the warning from Eastbourne RNLI.

It says: “What looks like a scenic walk can soon be under water when the tide comes in..

As you start planning your weekend trips to the coast, be sure to check the weather and tide times first so you don’t get caught out.

And remember: if you get into trouble, dial 999 and ask for the coastguard.

Our Volunteer Crew have recently helped several people that have been cut off by the tide and needed assistance especially in the area between Holywell and Birling Gap.”
