The Royal National Lifeboat Association (RNLI) has reminded people to look for warning signs on beaches, after a group of beachgoers became trapped in mud.

Numerous people were stuck in Bristol Channel's mudflats, forcing RNLI volunteers to be called into action, while one woman in particular was winched out after she was trapped in the sands, according to the Western Daily Press.

Pete Holder, lifeboat operations manager at the RNLI, told the newspaper: "There are many signs all over the beaches warning people of the dangers of going out onto the mud. We were lucky that this afternoon all those who put themselves into danger were rescued."

Mr Holder remarked that the RNLI, coastguard and fire service were called into action when it should have not been necessary.

Safety around water has also been highlighted by the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents, which has advised people to swim at supervised locations.ADNFCR-2754-ID-800748943-ADNFCR
