Remains of RNLI lifeguard hut on Peters Point
The RNLI lifeguard hut on Gwithian beach in west Cornwall was burnt to the ground on Thursday night (18 September). Police are currently investigating the cause of the blaze while the life saving charity counts the cost of replacing the hut and its contents for next season.
A member of the public reported the fire at around 23.00 hours on Thursday night. Unfortunately due to its remote location, at the end of Peters Point, above Gwithian beach, the fire brigade couldn’t access the hut. They were forced to monitor the blaze from a distance as the hut burnt to the ground.
