"More Jersey Incompetence!!!"

"No warning signs at some beaches???"

Islander Peter Judge at La Saline

BEACHGOERS have been left oblivious to lethal tidal currents because sea rescue services failed to re-erect warning signs at the start of this year’s tourist season.
Following a rescue last weekend, Islander Peter Judge, who campaigned to have the signs erected after a similar rescue in the late 1990s, contacted the JEP to say that a warning sign that used to be on La Saline Slip had not been up this year.
The JEP has since discovered that none of the 45 signs has been put back at the four most popular beaches with tourists and Islanders. A sign should be located at every access point – both slipways and steps – onto the St Ouen, St Brelade, Plémont and Grève de Lecq beaches.
The RNLI, which took over the beach lifeguard service earlier this year, said that it was not responsible for the signs in question.
