    What punishment?

    I came across this, and was quite irritated by the stupidity/irresponsibility of this woman. She could have caused somebody else to lose their life, nevermind the cost, and the fact that the lifeboat would have been unavailable to be sent elsewhere...

    I'm not sure whether she should be fined, made to do community service (I'm liking this idea best) or something else.

    Any thoughts on the issue?

    A young woman holidaying in Cornwall was rescued by the same lifeboat crew three times in four days after being cut off by the tide.
    She was saved by the RNLI on Tuesday, Thursday and again on Friday.
    In each case, she had been cut off by the tide while out walking and the D-class inshore lifeboat crews had to go into the water to rescue her.

    How do I post these pictures???

    First one's free. Charged the maximum amount for the cost of the next two rescues. Should be a large fine in there as well for stupidity.

    Maybe they should have given her the stern safety briefing after the first rescue instead of the third

    Make her visit the families of emergency services people who've died while trying to save idiots from their own stupidity.

    Fsitral beach, Newquay, where the father died and daughter is on life support, is one of the worlds top 10 surfing beaches. Quite why some idiot and his kids would try their luck paddling there shows utter stupidity



    The surf and riptide are so bad lately that surfers aren't even going in

    Just spent 2 weeks visiting my dad near here. Luckily I fuck off tomorrow for the airport. Back in Bangkok 15hrs later, thank God

    British society is geared to the slowest mind, much like the rest of Europe, but after statutory counselling for trauma she should be made to pay all costs plus a deterrent fine and disqualified from voting together with any offspring.

    I think the woman was Welsh from Llandiddlydeilo. They're mostly used to hills and babbling brooks.

    Six months in the wave machine at Leisure Lagoon in Bracknell.

    And here's the kicker: she's not allowed in the coffee shop for an iced bun and a latte when she's done.

    She may just have enjoyed the excitement of being rescued

    I thought she might just've been a young lass who fancied the boatman?

    The lifeboat crew have probably seen them enough, they could make next years calendar out of the pics.
