Lifeboat volunteers have been called out to rescue a woman who got cut off by the tide on Wells Beach while walking her dog.
They found her on a sand bar and took her back to the lifeboat house. She was uninured and needed no further help once she was back on dry land.
Deputy Launching Authority, Greg Hewitt, said: “We are pleased that today’s rescue was straight forward and all was well, but to avoid getting caught out by the tide, people must check the tide times before setting out along the coast. It is essential to be back on the main part of the beach, where the sand is dry and soft, at least four hours before high tide to prevent being cut off.
‘Now that the lifeguards have finished for the summer, there is no longer their assistance, or the availability of the all-weather terrain vehicle to help the lifeguards warn people of the risks of the incoming tide, so walkers need to be vigilant.’
