TEENAGERS were stopped from throwing rocks towards Branksome Dene beach following a report made to the coastguard.

Crews from Poole Coastguard were tasked to investigate after a member of the public reported a group of teenagers on the cliff throwing rocks towards the beach on Friday, April 2.

Thanks to an update from the informant, the team were provided with the group's location as they arrived on the scene.

The coastguard crew safely encouraged the teenagers down from their position on the cliff and advised them of the dangers they put themselves and the public in as a result of their actions.
