Sandbanks attracts visitors

BOAT owners using the Sandbanks Ferry slipways without permission have been warned their trailers and cars could be dragged into the water.

Coastguards spoke out after people were seen using the slipway yesterday.

A spokesman for Poole Coastguard Rescue said: “The slipway at Sandbanks isn’t a public slipway for launching your boats, even if the Bournemouth Swanage Motor Road and Ferry Company isn’t running.

“The tides that flow through this channel are strong enough to pull your trailer and car in the water. Please use the correct public slipways.”

Yesterday was the hottest day of the year so far and attracted large numbers to the coast.

More boats and crowds are expected in the coming days with good weather forecast for the half term holiday.
