RNLI lifeguards have operated on Skegness beach since 2009, replacing the service previously run by the local council as the RNLI expanded its coverage from the south coast.
Ingoldmells beach, three miles north of Skegness, was added as an RNLI lifeguarded beach for the 2014 peak season.
RNLI lifeguards also patrol the beaches further up the Lincolnshire coast at Mablethorpe and Sutton-on-Sea.
Skegness beach 2019 season:
25th May - 8th September
Ingoldmells beach 2019 season:
