Sussex beach bans all BBQs for ‘critical safety reasons’

A BEACH has issued a ban on all grills and cookers for “critical safety reasons”.

The West Wittering Estate announced the temporary measure due to the increased risk of fire as dry conditions continue across Sussex.

The ban includes all charcoal, wood and gas grills and all camping stoves and includes the beach parking lot, all fields and East Head.

The measure will remain in place until further notice.

A spokesman for the property also said cooking on the beach is also restricted due to the presence of beach grass, tamarisk and beach huts.

The ban comes as a hose ban is set to be enforced in parts of Sussex and the Met Office is warning of the possibility of “exceptionally severe” wildfires in the second half of this week.

Temperatures in West Wittering are expected to hit 27C today and remain in the mid 20s for the rest of the week, with mercury rising to 31C in Brighton.

West Sussex Fire and Rescue warned the risk of wildfires remains extremely high after battling a blaze in a field near a care home last night.

The service urges people to avoid open fires, including campfires, properly extinguish cigarettes and take litter home after spending time on grassy areas, especially glass.
