The RNLI has released a video of two tombstoners who have risked their lives by jumping into jagged rocks in Portsmouth.
A member of the public caught people jumping from battlements at Old Portsmouth - a notorious place for tombstoning.
They were seen jumping 35ft into shallow water and jagged rocks across the seabed - a dangerous landing from a great height.
The video is part of RNLI's drowning awareness campaign, called Respect the Water, where the charity will be helping people to stay safe this summer.
Back in 2008, a man was paralysed and confined to a wheelchair when he jumped into the water from Southsea Pier in a tombstoning incident.
– ogan Wheeldon, RNLI lifeguard supervisor
Tombstoning anywhere is incredibly dangerous but this footage is some of the most dangerous I’ve ever seen. These people are jumping from about 35ft into shallow water which hides jagged rocks on the sea bed. They are risking their lives, there is no doubt about it."
A lido in Portsmouth couldn't have opened at a better time for residents in Hilsea. With the heatwave set to continue and schools breaking up, the outdoor swimming pool is raring up for a busy summer.
A group of volunteers have been working hard to scrub up the lido and it's expected to be a popular choice for families although all children, including teenagers, have to be in a family group if they want to swim.
We've spoken to Helen Downing-Emms, the lead volunteer of Hilsea Lido about the re-opening of the lido.

We are making a fresh appeal for information now that we have an efit. I would urge anyone who recognises the man in the efit, to come forward and speak to us in confidence.

The family of a severely-disabled boy who suffered brain damage because of medical errors has been awarded £6.7m.
The boy, now 12, whose identity is protected by a court order, suffered devastating brain injuries after staff at St Mary’s Hospital in Portsmouth, failed to act quickly enough to spot that he had a serious medical condition.
As a result, he had a cardiac arrest which led to brain damage and left him with severe disabilities.
He has no independent movements, relies on skilled carers 24 hours a day and can only communicate through eye moments and the use of specialist technology.
Lawyers from BL Claims Solicitors pursued a clinical negligence claim on his behalf, alleging that there were delays in performing a chest x-ray to diagnose that the boy had a condition called congenital diaphragmatic hernia.
– The boy’s parents
The very tragic part is that if the doctors had listened or taken any notice of what we kept saying as parents then this event would have been easily avoided.
“Instead our son’s life has been completely ruined. He will never go to his school prom, enjoy playing on the beach or have fun kicking a football around with his friends. He will never eat a meal again or enjoy a drink or ice cream on a hot day.
“We will never see him get married or have children of his own. His active life has been sadly taken away from him and at such a young age.
“One message we would like give to all parents is please always trust your instincts when your child is unwell. If you believe that something is wrong then insist that action is taken by the doctors."
On the 14th July 2014, the High Court approved a settlement negotiated between the claimant and Portsmouth Hospitals NHS Trust, which runs St Mary’s.
