In June, RNLI volunteers scrambled in a lifeboat after visitors dialled 999 to report a stranded dog in the water at South Shore.

However, the dog turned out to be a seal – with rescuers concerned members of the public were considering entering the sea to rescue the animal.

More than £500m has been spent improving the sea since the ‘90s.
