 RNLI launches Respect the Water campaign warning people about dangers of the water.

People heading to the beach this summer are being warned about the risks of drowning at the beach in a campaign launched by the RNLI. It comes as the lifeboat service revealed over a third of those people not intending to enter the water died in coastal areas .

The charity is launching its Respect the Water campaign, a national drowning prevention scheme warning people the coastline and water can be dangerously unpredictable.

Two hard-hitting films are being released as part of the campaign and will be shown in cinemas throughout the UK and Ireland.

One shows how conditions in the water can change extremely quickly overwhelming someone if they are in the water.

The second is a breath test video which asks viewers to hold their breath demonstrating the effects of cold water shock.There have been 134 deaths in the water over the past five years and 33% of victims were taking part in activities such as walking, running, climbing and boating which the RNLI says means they were not likely to be entering the water.
