Drink and Drown #SeasideSafety

Brighton & Hove City Council have released a seaside safety web series that tells the story of young people having fun on a night out drinking alcohol. The video is aimed at day and night time drinkers who are between 18 -25 years old.

The mix of alcohol and sea swimming is the most deadly of cocktails with cold water acting as a shock to the system. The shock can be the precursor to drowning. Anything below 15 degrees is defined as cold water and can seriously affect your breathing and movement.
