29 September 2013 Last updated at 11:16 BST

The shifting sands and fast-moving tides at Morecambe Bay in Lancashire have claimed the lives of many people.

For 50 years, one man has made it his mission to guide tourists safely across the bay. Eighty-year-old Cedric Robinson is the Queen's Guide to the Sands.

He receives a salary of £15 a year for the job, and says he has no plans to retire just yet.

Dave Guest has been to meet him.
