The RNLI says it's looking to have lifeguards on some key beaches from this weekend, following two separate deaths in Cornwall on Bank Holiday Monday
The charity says despite warnings about having no lifeguards on duty, lifeboats have just had their busiest weekend of the year so far.
It comes as the Coastguard in the South West have urged people not to park in their designated spaces, as it can slow down response times.
We’re working as quickly as possible to roll out our lifeguard service, starting with key beaches in England this weekend. But our Chief Executive, Mark Dowie, has written this open letter as we ask for help to manage an impossible situation. pic.twitter.com/M3UyNO5fYj— RNLI (@RNLI) May 26, 2020
