PEOPLE are being urged not to use inflatables in the sea.

Brighton and Hove City Council is asking beachgoers to “keep themselves safe” after two fatal accidents.

A spokeswoman said: “With the sunny weather continuing, we’re urging residents and visitors to keep themselves safe if they go in the sea and not to use inflatables.

“Brighton and Hove’s coastline can be extremely dangerous, with winds coming in from multiple directions causing dangerous wave conditions on the shoreline.

“Sadly, there have been two fatal accidents in the past couple of weeks involving people using inflatables in the sea.”

If, against guidance, people do decide to use inflatables, there are recommendations to follow.

Ensure children are closely supervised and keep near the shore.

Only use inflatables between the red and yellow beach flags and follow the lifeguards’ advice.

Do not take them out in big waves or when the orange windsock is flying and if you get into difficulty, stay with your inflatable as it will keep you above the water.
