Stapehill Road at Hampreston is still impassable, as the idiot whose car is in the ditch must now be aware.

Why, when the Coastguards and Police ask people to stay away from the coasts, do we continue to see photos of people endangering themselves and the authorities by flouting this sensible advice?

If they want to refuse sensible advice, let them cope when they get into trouble!

Because I have a camera that cost over five thousand pounds. This is what it was built for. If your hobby is knitting, then you're more than welcome to stay at home and do it.

Just to add to that. How much did your car cost? You know roads are dangerous yet you still choose to drive. Do you expect the emergency services to risk their lives saving your sorry @rse?

I'm sure there are some rescue teams doing nothing so let's all go out and stand on the edge of a jetty to take a picture.
I for one would like to say thank you to those who are trying their best to avoid banging their heads on brick walls and wondering why the heck they bother, aka Rescue teams and associated emergency services.
For anyone who thinks it's all very exhilarating, go and visit Iford caravan park. Oh no, you can't because it and the homes there are all flooded.
Think about what you're doing people, please.

If people have been warned to stay away unless they've got a very good reason to be there they should be made to pay the costs of any rescue. They should also be charged with manslaughter if anyone involved in their rescue dies.

Not at all, I act responsibly and I take responsibility for my own actions. I also think that everybody else should too nstead of taking actions that are both foolish and unnecessary then expecting other people to get them out of trouble.
