RNLI urge people to respect the water after six deaths over weekend


The RNLI has urged visitors to the seaside to respect the water as warm weather approaches following a deadly weekend on British beaches.

Six people including a six-year-old boy and his mother died in a series of tragedies to hit the nation's coasts as unseasonably stormy weather blew in.

Meanwhile more than £20,000 has been donated to the family of a gardener swept to his death from Fistral Beach, Cornwall on Saturday.

His two-year-old daughter was also caught by the waves and reportedly remains in a critical condition.
