Two children are rescued after getting stranded on a sandbar on the north Cornish coast.

An adult also got into difficulty when they became cut off by the tide at Rock.

The casualties had become stuck near the sailing club as the tide came in around them.

The lifeboat was scrambled to help on Thursday afternoon and everyone was brought back to safety.

It was then returned to station and was washed down, ready for service shortly after.

"We urge everyone visiting the coast this weekend to be aware of the local tide times and cut off areas so you can keep yourself safe.

"Tide times are widely available online, on display at many beaches and in local businesses and arming yourself with a simple but very valuable piece of information will really make a difference."

Volunteer Lifeboat Operations Manager Mark Lawrence
