A family of five are rescued after being trapped by the tide at Bedruthan Steps.

Four were plucked to safety by Newquay lifeboat, while the dad and family dog were airlifted by a chopper from Culdrose.

They are visiting from Lancashire.

Both Newquay's RNLI inshore lifeboats launched at the request of Falmouth Coastguard and were on scene within 12 minutes. The D class inshore lifeboat Valerie Wilson was twice taken on to the beach by helmsman Ashley Mann, and four of the family, two young boys, a teenager and an adult female, were transferred to the larger Atlantic 85 inshore lifeboat Gladys Mildred.

The Royal Navy Search & Rescue helicopter Rescue 193 then airlifted the remaining person, an adult male and the family's dog, off the beach and with everyone now in the hands of the rescue crews, the two RNLI lifeboats left the scene at 4.37pm. The Atlantic 85 inshore lifeboat, with Ben Eglinton at the helm, returned four of the family to the safety of Newquay Harbour, which was reached at 4.55pm.

After their second call to people trapped by the tide in the last 12 days, Newquay RNLI volunteer Lifeboat Operations Manager Gareth Horner reminded people to pay attention to local tide times whilst out enjoying the coastline.
