An Eyemouth father, whose daughter suffered serious brain damage after being swept to sea at Eyemouth Harbour, is campaigning for better safety equipment at beaches.
Andy MacLean has set up an online petition and is looking for nearly 100,000 signatures to take to parliament.
He wants to see a law introduced, requiring all beaches to have risk assessments and life saving equipment.
The petition can be seen here.
Andy Maclean says his daughter would be living a very different life now had the beach in Eyemouth had life saving equipment been available.
His 15-year-old daughter Katie-Lou needs round-the-clock care after an accident in June 2012 left her severely brain damaged.

"Our daughter now has severe brain injuries, the reason being the amount of time she spent in the water. People were trying to pull her out of the water with dog leads, with lorry straps, and some people even risked their only lives jumping in the waves, and many people got hurt trying to save her. If there was life saving equipment that could have been thrown to her and pulled her out earlier, she would no doubt be very different now."
A father whose 15-year-old daughter was left severely brain damaged after getting swept to sea at Eyemouth is campaigning for life saving equipment to be made a legal requirement at all UK beaches.

A fisherman from the Scottish Borders has filmed a close encounter, with what he's convinced is a killer whale.
John Malone was out kayaking when he spotted a dorsal fin heading his way.
Jenny Longden reports.
John Malone was fishing in his kayak off the coast of Eyemouth when a huge killer whale came spouting out of the water.
Mr Malone, who is an experienced kayaker, caught the footage on his helmet cam.
He has never seen anything like it:
"I was just sitting quietly fishing away, when i started to hear a huge blowing noise. I spun round and right in front of me was a huge killer whale.
"It was only in shot for a few seconds before it disappeared under the water and left a huge suction ring.
"That's when i really started to panic. Once it disappeared, i didn't know where it was going to come up again. Fortunately it didn't come up underneath my kayak."
John Malone, from Newton St Boswells, was kayaking off the coast of Eyemouth when all of a sudden a killer whale emerged from the water.
Mr Malone captured this footage from his head-cam:
A man kayaking off the coast of Eyemouth had a narrow escape when he came face to face with a killer whale.
The creature surfaced just yards from John Malone as he filmed with his head camera.
It is thought the killer whale had ventured south in search of food.

The oldest marine reserve in Scotland could fold if new volunteers do not come forward.
That is the warning from wildlife experts in St Abbs and Eyemouth, who are desperately seeking new members for the marine reserve committee.
The voluntary reserve was set up nearly 30 years ago to protect marine wildlife on the East Berwickshire coast.
Current members say if new people don't come forward to volunteer, it could disappear, which could have a knock-on effect to the local economy.
