A COUPLE and their child have been rescued after camping on a cliff edge despite COVID restrictions.
Despite the ongoing global coronavirus pandemic and coronavirus restrictions a couple and their child had to be rescued by the coastguard after they decided to camp on a cliff edge.
The family had set up their camp on the cliff edge in the North York Moors on Saturday. The coastguard was quick to come to their rescue as teams from Staithes and Whitby Coastguard were notified of a child and two adults campaign dangerously close to the edge of a cliff.
The family had decided to set up their tent in the dangerous location on the coastline in the area of Cleveland Way. When coastguards discovered the family inside their tent they issued “safety advice due to the dangerous location of their tent”.
Not only were the family camping in a dangerous location but they had also breached coronavirus restrictions in order to get to their hazardous camping spot. The coastguard confirmed that police were also called to the incident, but they were unsure if the family were fined or not.
A Staithes Coastguard spokesperson said, “Today’s call was to attend a section of the Cleveland Way to issue safety advice to two adults and a child camping on the cliff edge.
“An officer from North Yorkshire Police also attended due to breach of coronavirus restrictions.
“If walking the Cleveland Way please stay on designated footpaths.”
