Coastguards are urging people to be vigilant after jellyfish were spotted on the south coast.
Solent Coastguard is urging people to be on the lookout for a type of jellyfish that can deliver a powerful sting.
It’s believed that “Portuguese Men o’ War” have been spotted in West Wittering and the Selsey Bill areas off the West Sussex coast already this week.
Today Solent Coastguard has been taking reports of sightings in Chale Bay on the Isle of Wight.
The advice from the Marine Conservation Society is not to touch the jellyfish with bare hands, and seek medical attention if you are stung.
The MCS also ask that any sightings are reported to them.
