“Thankfully these people did exactly the right thing and called 999 and asked for the Coastguard.

“We had our teams there very quickly and used our expertise in cliff rescue to bring all of them to safety.

“Always keep a watchful eye on the tide while you’re on the beach, remember to leave plenty to time to get back and make sure you’ve got a well-charged mobile phone to call us if the worst happens.”
