The RNLI is warning us to swim at lifeguarded beaches as the heatwave sizzles on .
 
It is after a spate of rescues over the last few days.

Four bathers at Perranporth had to be pulled to safety yesterday alone.

Watch a video of the crew who were then called to a group cut off by the tide here.


Simon Peppler, RNLI lifeguard supervisor said:

'The glorious weather continues and as a result the beaches are packed, with plenty of people heading into the water to cool off. We had a number of situations today in which people were caught out of their depth, but RNLI lifeguards providing safety patrols were able to quickly respond and bring them back to shore.

The three who were cut off by the tide were very fortunate as they would have been trapped against the cliffs once the tide had come in further.

As the warm weather continues we'd encourage beachgoers to head to lifeguarded beaches, swim between the red and yellow flags and check tide times before heading out.'

The RNLI has also created a free 'beach finder' mobile app to help people find their nearest lifeguarded beach. It can be downloaded from www.rnli.org/beach.
