The advice includes:

○ Carry a charged mobile phone, so you are able to call 999 and ask for the coastguard if you require assistance.

○ Always stick to clear coastal paths and don’t venture close to the edge of cliffs!

○ Always keep your furry friends on a lead when out walking in the coastal areas.

○ Ensure that you check tide times before walking on the coast.

○ Have fun , but remember if you do see someone who requires assistance dial 999 and ask for the coastguard.
