East Riding of Yorkshire Council has renewed its agreement with the RNLI to provide lifeguards at weekends in June at three beaches in Bridlington:  Bridlington North, Bridlington South and Bridlington South Cliff.

From 3 July, the service will be provided on weekdays as well, and will also include Hornsea and Withernsea.

Councillor Mike Medini, portfolio holder for cultural and leisure assets, said: "I am delighted that we have been able to work with the RNLI again to fund the provision of this vital service, and I look forward to its further expansion for the summer holidays."
