PHUKET: The Phuket Lifeguard Club’s contract to protect the island’s beaches expired on Friday, leaving tourists to swim unprotected in seas that claimed many lives last year.

On Saturday, staff removed their equipment from the beaches.

The 9.9-million-baht contract to guard the beaches is put out on an annual tender, which critics claim is too short a period of time.
