A PLEA for visitors to the East Yorkshire coast to leave inflatables at home has followed an incident when a family of five, including two children, were rescued after being swept almost two miles out to sea in an inflatable dinghy, the RNLI has said. 

The group, who were not wearing life jackets, drifted out off Withernsea. In a separate call-out, crews rescued two teenagers whose dinghy had also drifted out from shore. The RNLI said those involved could easily have drowned and urged people to leave inflatables at home.

WOODMANSEY Parish Council has issued a warning after repeated vandalism and criminal damage at Victoria Park (formerly Southwood Park) where fencing separating the park from the Imerys quarry has been taken down.  A spokesperson commented: “This is highly dangerous as there are sheer drops on the quarry side.  Imerys are replacing the fence with steel paneling but have reported this is an ongoing and and regular vandalism problem.”

Anyone witnessing vandalism in the park is urged to call the police on 101 or contact the Parish Council on  or 01430 410383.
