Two young women had camped in woodland on Cornelian Bay, woke up and didn’t know where they were.

The lifeboat crew of three volunteers found them standing on a ledge an hour after high tide.

They took them aboard, with their tent and other belongings, and transported them to Cayton Bay, where the coastguards were waiting to check them over.
