Two people and their dog have been rescued after being cut off by the tide at Stiffkey
The Wells inshore lifeboat was called out just after 7pm on Easter Sunday after reports of the two people being sighted.
With the help of coastguards, it navigated through the creeks and rescued them within halfn an hour.
Lifeboat Operations Manager, Chris Hardy, said ‘I am pleased that this incident ended well, and it was extremely helpful that the couple used what3words so that they could be located quickly. However, I cannot stress enough how important it is for walkers to check the tide times so that they don’t find themselves cut off by the tide. People enjoying a walk on the marsh or along the beach should always ensure they are back on the mainland at least 4 hours before high tide to avoid being cut off.’
