Danger in Britains Waters

Message from the coastguards to all those enjoying water sports this weekend - lets be careful out there!

For this long weekend 700 of the Maritime and Coastguard Agency staff are going on strike from tonight for 48 hours, protesting at a starting salary which is currently the extremely low £ 12,500 (fair enough if you ask me).

There will still be the RNLI lifeboats but the coordination centres will be on reduced staff.

More on this story here.

So don't go and smash your boat on the rocks, like this £200,000 boat outside Falmouth!
