Pokémon Go has become a national phenomenon, but closer to home a warning has been issued after two young girls waded through mud to hunt for Pokémon.
Wardens on Brean beach were forced to call the teenage girls back after they were spotted in knee-deep mud playing the game on their smartphones.
The two girls made their way across the mudflats to around half a mile out from the beach and beach warden Dave Furber was concerned for their safety.
He said: “They were certainly putting themselves at risk as they struggled through the mud while holding their mobile phones. The tide comes in quickly and people can easily get into difficulty – it’s not worth the risk.”
