The RNLI is launching a month-long event in Bude, warning of the dangers of swimming in the sea.

Swim Safe aims to teach children and parents about the differences between swimming in a pool and in open water at the coast.

Children account for around 2/3 of incidents RNLI lifeguards respond to each year, on some of the UK's busiest beaches.
