More warning signs needed at Welsh port
Posted by Ben Alexander.
A councillor is calling for more health and safety signage to be installed at a sandbank after fears a potential catastrophe is on the horizon.
According to the Llanelli Star, Les George is concerned that families are visiting the sandbank, at Burry Port, in Carmarthenshire, completely unaware of the possible danger of the tide coming in unexpectedly. Mr George said several rescues had already been made.
Speaking at a town council meeting, the councillor said: "These people do not realise the danger they are in and how quickly the tide surrounds the sandbank.
"The problems occur when the water comes in and they try to get back to safety on land.
"We need better signage up to warn people of the dangers. Something needs to be done before it's too late."
Mr George's comments were backed up by the Royal National Lifeboat Institution (RNLI), who said although some signs were present at the site, more were "definitely" needed.
A spokesperson for Carmarthenshire Council said it had worked with the RNLI on the wording of the signs, but welcomed any more suggestions.
Earlier this month warning signs were called for after a spate of youngsters wave dodging in Whitby.
