Jellyfish spotted in Selsey and Witterings

Several sightings of jellyfish caused a splash last week.

Solent Coastguard warned swimmers to watch out for the stingers, and a spokesman said: “It’s believed that ‘Portuguese Men o’ War’ have been spotted in West Wittering and the Selsey Bill.”

This type of jellyfish can deliver a powerful sting, and the Marine Conservation Society urge those that are stung to seek medical attention.
