Fifteen people have drowned so far this month and 168 since the beginning of April.

Police and lifeguards have warned that alcohol and bravado could prove a fatal combination for holidaymakers relaxing on the beach.

The death toll for Friday and Saturday is the highest in Poland for a weekend this year.
