RNLI lifeguards return to posts on Ceredigion beaches
The RNLI's summer lifeguards are returning to patrol four of Ceredigion's busiest beaches.
The lifeguards will be stationed at Aberystwyth north, Llangrannog, New Quay and Aberporth beaches from this weekend.
They returned briefly in Aberystwyth for the Diamond Jubilee bank holiday weekend earlier this month.
They start work at Borth, Clarach, Aberystwyth south and Tresaith beaches on 7 July.
The lifeguards will be at their posts daily from 10:00 to 16:00 BST until 2 September.
The scheme started in Pembrokeshire in 2008 and was extended to take in Carmarthenshire, Swansea and Ceredigion a year later.
The lifeguards have already completed two weeks of intense training and passed fitness tests.
Councillor Gareth Lloyd, who is responsible for tourism on Ceredigion council, said: "We look forward to another incident free summer on Ceredigion's beaches in the safe hands of the RNLI lifeguards."
Elin Jones, RNLI lifeguard supervisor, said the lifeguards were eager to return to their posts.
