Weever Fish Warning
8:00am 26th August 2013
There is a warning of danger lurking beneath Cornwall's golden sands.
There have been a string of reports of weever fish stings over the last few weeks.
One man has been caught out three times so far this summer.
The creature burrows into the shallows, and then pumps poison into the feet of anyone who steps on them.
RNLI lifeguard James Uren said: "We try and stick the affected limb into hot water for around thirty to forty-five minutes, until the pain has subsided. It is bad luck if you do get stung, but if you wear some jelly shoes or some wetsuit boots, that can help to stop you getting stung.
"What people like experience is the feeling of standing on some glass or something sharp to start with, then after two to three minutes they'll feel quite and intense sting in the foot or the affected area."
