« on: 16:45:32, 17/07/11 »

One to bear in mind for anybody walking the coasts - but great to hear the efforts of the RNLI & RAF save the day once again...

Total fools in my opinion. First there's plenty of SAFE places to park your car round there, secondly the tide comes in fast but really not so fast you can't see what is going on. We've walked round that area quite a few times and even swam in the sea there without any problems. The coast guard should stop the parking access to the beach as there seems to be a number of incidents every year often including cars.
