The Irish Coast Guard is urging people not put themselves at risk by diving or swimming in places that are not recognised recreational areas.

With the warmer weather over the last few days many people are taking to the water and enjoying outdoor activities.

Last year saw an increase in incidents, and figures are on the up again this year, with a number of incidents being highlighted, including people going to sea on supermarket bought toy dingies in Donegal.
