People visiting a beach in Suffolk which recently re-opened after two years of repair work are being warned not to climb on the rocks which have been installed to protect the coastline from erosion.
Around 20 thousand tonnes of rock were used in the scheme on South Beach in Lowestoft. The council says people are risking their lives by climbing on them.
"Warning signs are present on these structures and whilst we cannot prevent people from climbing on the rocks, we can remind everyone of the importance of beach safety. Over 400 people drown in the UK each year, with approximately 60 of these being children and young people. We want people to enjoy our award-winning beaches whilst being mindful of the risks."
