Coastguard issue warning as storm approaches

Solent Coastguard Watch Manager, Steve Mann said

This weekend we have been expecting hurricane-force winds and we are urging people to take extra care.

The crashing waves are spectacular to watch but also extremely dangerous. HM Coastguard’s advice is simple: don’t take risks. But if you do get into difficulty, or spot someone who might be in trouble, call 999 and ask for the Coastguard.
