Newbiggin Sea is actually properly referred to as Newbiggin-by-the-Sea. This is a small town, and as you might rightly guess, it is indeed located by the sea on the eastern side of the country. It sits over to the east of Northumberland, and is home to Newbiggin Bay – a beach that is curved and provides a nice view for the many people who are fortunate enough to live in this part of the town. When you visit the area, the last thing you’d naturally think about would be to find a lawyer in Newbiggin Sea.
A major project has been completed to add plenty of fresh sand to the beach, which was eroding away quite steadily. Lots of people visit and use the beach throughout the year, but it is popular with naturalists at certain times of the year when they watch migrating birds leaving and returning to the area.
Staying safe on the beach
Most beaches are quite safe to use, but of course, when you are close to the water it does make sense to take adequate care so you do not come into any danger. There should be appropriate signage warning of potential dangers, such as tidal currents for example, as well as other signs warning of any wildlife that might pose a danger.
If you are careful and keep your wits about you, there should be no danger of having any sort of accident on a beach anywhere in the country. However, you might be unlucky and stand on some broken glass, or be injured walking along a promenade if it has not been maintained to a high standard and has been left to crumble.
What should you do?
Obviously, medical help will be the first thing you think about. Even if you tread on glass and it doesn’t seem serious, you might still need a tetanus jab to prevent infection. Getting your injuries checked so you can be sure they are not too serious is a good idea.
Once that is done, your thoughts might turn to looking for a lawyer in Newbiggin Sea, or anywhere else you have been.
