Reader’s Comment: On the beach do as the natives do


In response to, Jane Kelly: The riddle of the sands: culture matters, Morgan Courtenay wrote

I think the lifeguards are going to have to lay down the law. It is clear that people with Asian or African ethnic backgrounds who have previously been accustomed to urban living are not familiar with British seasides and the dangers. When you’re in another country, you need to do as the natives do. My parents are from West Africa, where there are a lot of rivers, deserts and swamps spanning several countries. Often, European visitors are more susceptible to dangers from the surrounding environment because they are unused to it and unfamiliar with how to deal with such extremity. I’ve never actually been to an English beach– my parents never let me go when I was at school. Very sad for the people who drowned in these cases, any how. A little caution goes a long way.
