RNLI warn people not to swim in the sea during warm weather

The RNLI is warning people not swim in the sea off the south coast during the warm weather.

Crews are asking people to follow the Government lockdown guidelines to stay at home and not to exercise in the sea to protect themselves and their volunteers.

The charity warns that while their lifeboat crew is available to respond to incidents it puts additional pressure on volunteers other front line emergency services as well as potentially exposing them to COVID-19.
