Four teenage boys stranded by rising tides near Newquay have been plucked to safety.

Both lifeboats were scrambled to Whipsiderry on Saturday afternoon.

The RNLI has released this statement:

'Newquay's volunteer RNLI lifeboat crew launched both their lifeboats at approximately 3pm yesterday (6 July) to assist four teenage boys trapped by the rising tide on a small section of beach at Whipsiderry. The four holidaymakers were taken aboard the lifeboats and transferred to the safety of Newquay harbour.      

Falmouth Coastguard contacted Newquay RNLI lifeboat station shortly before 3pm, requesting assistance for the group of trapped youngsters who had been walking along the beach at Whipsiderry and with high tide due in a couple of hours, were now trapped on a small section of shore.

The charity's two inshore lifeboats were quickly at the scene and in fine conditions with a 1.5metre swell, the crew of the D class inshore lifeboat, helmed by Joe Emmett, went onto the beach to recover the four young men. With support from their RNLI lifeguard colleagues who attended the scene on their rescue watercraft (jet-ski), the lifeboat crew ferried the youngsters, complete with surfboards & rucksacks, out to the larger Atlantic 85 inshore lifeboat.     

Helmsman Christian Brown and his fellow RNLI volunteers then transferred the four teens to the safety of Newquay harbour where they were met by members of Newquay coastguard team at approximately 3.20pm.  

With the blazing conditions forecast to last beyond the weekend, people are reminded to be aware of tide times whilst out enjoying the coastline and if in any doubt, ask RNLI lifeguards for advice on local conditions.'
