Watch: Our lifeguards are ready to rescue this summer

This summer is going to be a busy one, with 30 million people planning to visit the coast. More people at the coast means more people getting into danger - but our lifesavers are ready to answer the call for help.

In 2020, our skilled lifeguards aided 25,172 people, responded to 10,687 incidents and saved 110 lives, and they've been training hard to make sure they are ready for this busy summer. Find out more in the video below:

Remember: If you're heading to the beach, please #RespectTheWater and choose a lifeguarded one. If you get into trouble, Float To Live. And in an emergency, call 999 and ask for the Coastguard.
