SHARE:

HM Coastguard responded to 447 incidents over the weekend (May 30 – May 31) to help people who found themselves in difficulty making it the busiest of 2020 to date.

Sunday saw a 168% increase on the May 2019 average with 241 incidents making it the busiest day of the year so far and Saturday was the second busiest day of the year with 206 incidents.

Over the weekend the search and rescue helicopters were involved in 50 incidents and lifeboats were involved in 202 call outs.

HM Coastguard Duty Commander Matt Leat said: “Very high numbers of people took to the beaches, coast and sea this weekend which led to a huge increase in the number of incidents.

“Boating, swimming and other sea-based activities are now allowed again across the UK, as is spending time on the beach. However, now more than ever, people need to respect the sea and the coast to ensure the safety of themselves and their families.

“Regardless of how well you know the coast, or how experienced you are in your chosen sport, the sea can still catch you out.

“If you are visiting the beach with your children, have fun but stay safe. Make sure you have sight of your children at all times.

“In addition, the Government guidelines around social distancing should continue to be observed by everyone in the UK.”
