Stranded teenagers rescued from incoming tide

Bank holiday drama for Clovelly lifeboat crew.

LIFEBOAT crews rescued four teenagers cut off by the incoming tide last night (Monday).

The local youngsters were taken to safety by the Clovelly RNLI after becoming stranded on rocks between Clovelly and Bucks Mills just after 6pm.

Adam Beani, one of the two helmsmen on board the shout, said: “It’s always worth checking the tides before venturing along the shore line.

“The teens weren’t familiar with the area and have ensured that they will be more careful from now on.

“Everyone is back safe and sound which is of course the most important thing.”

On Friday, the Clovelly crew launched to tow a vessel back to the harbour from Mouth Mill, towards Hartland.
