'Be extra careful'

POLICE chief operations officer Assistant Commissioner of Police Rusiate Tudravu is again warning members of the public thinking of visiting picnic spots over the Easter weekend to be extra careful.

Mr Tudravu said it was important for people to ensure the safety of their property and loved ones.

"We are therefore requesting members of the public to assist us in making this long weekend a safe one and ensure the safety of their family is prioritised at all times," he said.

Mr Tudravu said with the increasing number of deaths in the country, it was only right for people to be extra careful while out for a swim.

Of the 20 people who have died as a result of drowning so far this year, seven of the victims were under 10 years.

"Picnic spots will be very busy, so if you're intending on taking the whole family, please keep a close eye on your children and any signs of danger," Mr Tudravu said.
