Isle of Wight Council

The Isle of Wight Council is continuing to advise members of the public to stay away from a section of beach at Sandown as a precautionary measure, following the bringing ashore on the beach of a 36ft motor cruiser for salvaging which ran aground offshore overnight (Wednesday). A cordon was due to be established around the boat and a section of the beach while the salvaging company dealt with the removal of the vessel, and contractors ensure the beach is fully cleared. It was hoped, but not certain, that the vessel would be removed from the beach late today (Thursday). To find out more, please visit: https://www.iwight.com/news/Advice-for-beach-users-at-Sandown
