RNLI Lifeboat aids two people cut off by the tide at Scolt Head Island, Brancaster
At 11.34am on Monday 26th August UK Coastguard requested the launch of the Hunstanton RNLI Lifeboat in response to reports of 2 persons cut off by the tide at Scolt Head Island, Brancaster.
Hunstanton Lifeboat proceeded to Brancaster and located the casualties. They had swam across the channel to the island. As the tide was flooding and there was a strong tidal current the local coastguard requested the lifeboat. They were taken on board the lifeboat and landed on to the beach into the care of the local coastguard response team, who advised them on the risk of swimming in strong tidal waters. The lifeboat was then released to return to station.
