RNLI lifeguards set to return to Burnham-On-Sea and Berrow in 2015

RNLI lifeguards have this week finished their second summer season on Burnham-On-Sea and Berrow beaches - and are set to return again next year.

Sedgemoor District Council introduced the team of lifeguards last year to boost safety on local beaches and says they have once again been a success.

"The lifeguards worked alongside Sedgemoor District Council's beach management team of beach wardens and clean surroundings staff and have been a great success," the council's Claire Faun told

"The lifeguards will resume their duties next season during July and August."

Sedgemoor's own beach wardens will remain on duty until late September - supervising beach activities, providing basic first aid, issuing jetty permits and collecting car parking fees where applicable.

They are also trained to the Royal Life Saving Society 'Beach Safety Wardens' standard.
