Guernsey's Coastguard warns islanders about dangers of the sea

Guernsey Coastguard is warning islanders to think twice about going out on the water this weekend while the island is battered by Storm Brian.

Captain Chad Murray is urging people to take care on the island's coastlines and to keep a safe distance from the sea to avoid being swept into the water.

He says islanders should think twice about going out on the water and that sea conditions change fast and can be dangerous.

Boat owners are advised to check their moorings and secure any loose gear.
