After the deaths of two people on Monday, following accidents off the coast of Cornwall, the RNLI said it was doing what it could to restart its service. A 17 year old girl died trapped beneath a capsized boat. She was with three others who survived after their rigid inflatable boat capsized on the Doom Bar near Padstow, which is not an place where there is usually a lifeguard. A man died in hospital after being pulled from the sea near Constantine by an off-duty RNLI lifeguard. The deaths came after warnings about dangerous conditions over the bank holiday weekend.

The RNLI suspended lifeguard patrols in March and has since announced plans to patrol 70 beaches this summer rather than its usual 240. Signs at Chapel Porth Beach warn the public about RNLI lifeguards not being there. Steve England, from surf magazine Carve, said, “The ex-lifeguards are here. They daren’t leave the beach; they daren’t stop watching the water.” Cornwall councillor Pete Mitchell said “I think the RNLI have got to get back to the beaches as quickly as possible.” Chief executive of the RNLI, Mark Dowie, is urging the government to restrict access to beaches until lifeguard patrols return, “before more lives are lost”. He said safety advice can only help a bit when people are desperate to find some freedom after weeks of lockdown.

He told Radio Cornwall that the RNLI needed “time to train and prepare for ever-changing medical directions about what we can and can’t do on the beach”. He said RNLI lifeguards would be on “several” Cornwall beaches this weekend.

Residents in the Isles of Scilly say they have been “left with nothing” while the tourism industry is “in a desperate situation”. The local economy on the islands is centred around holiday lets and self-catering accommodation, and these have not had any income since lockdown began. Many business owners pay council tax instead of business rates; in consequence they are left without financial support. The Council of the Isles of Scilly said it had £211,000 for businesses, which will be invited to apply for funding.

Sir Richard Branson’s Virgin Orbit company has tried unsuccessfully to launch a rocket over the Pacific Ocean. The rocket’s engine ignited but an anomaly caused the flight to be terminated early. Although his space company has its headquarters in California currently, he is keen to bring it to the UK also. Newquay Airport has been identified as an ideal location from which to base operations.
