Lifeguard cover ends on Cornish beaches.

It is the last day of summer patrols.

Twelve bays from Praa Sands to will be manned at weekends and half term in October.

Bude Summerleaze has been extended through November too.

Ross McCloud from the RNLI said:

“The trained professionals are there to look out for you so it’s not just water based rescues but they can also deal with first aid and deal with all the thousands of lost children there are every year. So, for the parents out there it is always a good idea to swim at a lifeguarded beach.

“Introduce your kids to the lifeguards when you arrive. If they’ve got a lost kids scheme with wristbands please take them up on that and always make sure you always brief the kids on where to go if they get lost. That is to report to the lifeguards in their yellow t-shirts and red shorts by the red and yellow flags”
