It's believed two young sisters escaped serious injury after finding almost one hundred nails hidden in the sand at a beach in Canford Cliffs in Poole.

The council says its beaches are regularly inspected. And they hadn't received any reports of nails. The girls' father said it could've been dangerous.

“Poole’s beaches are regularly raked and inspected. No reports of this nature were received over the weekend, but we would urge anyone who finds potentially dangerous items on the beach to report this to the nearest beach office or warden so that it can be addressed straight away, and other wardens along our coastline can be made aware of any issue.”
