Padstow RNLI lifeboat crew rescue three people and a dog cut off by the tide

The volunteer lifeboat crew at Padstow RNLI launched at 7.56pm on Tuesday evening (19 July) to assist three people and their dog cut off by the tide at Harlyn.

 The Tamar class all weather lifeboat arrived on scene and launched the inshore Y-boat with two crew members who made two trips to bring all three people and their dog back to the lifeboat.

They were transported back to Padstow lifeboat station safe and well by 8.18pm.

Deputy coxswain and RNLI mechanic Michael England said 'They realised they were cut off by the tide and made the right decision by calling the Coastguard. We are glad we could be there to help them. We would always recommend that people seek advice on the tide times, currents and weather conditions to ensure they can enjoy our coastline safely'
