jellyfish Brean beach

Beach users in Burnham-On-Sea, Berrow and Brean have this week been warned to watch out for jellyfish along local tide lines.

Several Moon and Barrel Jellyfish, which can deliver a mild sting to paddlers and swimmers, have been washed up along local beaches during recent days.

Brean beach warden Dave Furber said that several large jellyfish had been washed up on the beach over the weekend. They advised paddlers to beware as a precaution.

A spokesman for the Marine Conservation Society (MCS) told Burnham-On-Sea.com: “While some jellyfish are harmless or have a very mild sting, others have a more painful sting. We recommend that, for your own safety, you do not touch them.”
