Public told to avoid Cumbria beaches and promenades during 'intense' weather

COASTGUARDS have warned against taking ‘dangerous’ pictures of Cumbria’s coasts
The warning comes after reports of people risking their lives to take ‘spectacular’ pictures of waves across the UK.
A Liverpool Coastguard spokesman said: “It all looks very exciting and spectacular but if you get too close you can get swept out to sea. It’s dangerous and not worth risking your life.
“Invest in a telescopic camera if you really want a picture - it’s worth less than your life. Why risk it?
“People need to stay well away from promenades and beaches while the weather is this intense, until it calms down.”

Have your say
It should also be mentioned its not worth risking your life and crossing the railway lines because the under passes are flooded to take a look either. I'm sure the Emergency services have enough to deal with without clearing fatalities from our railways.
