Firefighters were called to Egerton Park on Monday (April 24) - but there was no need for alarm as the crew were just taking part in a training exercise.

As part of the Chief Fire Officer’s Drowning Prevention and Water Safety Week (April 24-30), which is being supported by East Sussex Fire and Rescue, Bexhill Red Watch took part in a water safety training session at the Egerton Park lake.

Firefighters spread the safety message to curious passersby.

Martin Walker, of Bexhill Red Watch, said: “Please be careful around water. Even ‘knee deep’ can be ‘too deep’.”
