Warning signs to be introduced at Grimsby Riverhead

Warning signs are to be introduced at Grimsby's Riverhead in order to decrease the danger of drowning in the area.

Along with the notices, buoyancy aids will be placed around the Riverhead Basin, while a selection of other safety measures are being put under consideration for the long term, reports the Grimsby Telegraph.

These proposals include permanent barriers and a sensor, alerting CCTV cameras when an individual enters the water.

Safety signs were also introduced at Watchet's west beach, West Somerset, in August, warning people of the dangers of climbing on rocks in the area.

Councillor Steve Norton commended the plans, but told the news provider that he does not want to see East Lincolnshire Council turning into a "nanny authority".

"The cost is low to the authority and I do support these recommendations, but I do have concerns that we are trying to protect people who really ought to know better," Mr Norton explained.ADNFCR-2754-ID-801474222-ADNFCR
