Coastguard warning after primary school children seen near sea at Hill Head
Coastguards have issued a warning after schoolchildren were pictured standing on a beach as Storm Imogen hit the south coast.
The children were spotted on the beach at Hill Head, as the storm continued to bring heavy winds and large waves to the area.
Hill Head Coastguard posted a photograph of the group on Twitter and wrote: ‘Amazing - one of the off duty coastguards just saw this group of primary school children on the beach at Salterns.
‘Primary school children were on an organised trip - the waves are unpredictable & contain debris #StormImogen where was your child today?’
