Rescuers have told Pirate FM that a schoolgirl trapped by rising tides in a cave at Polzeath is lucky to be alive.

Crews from Rock only found the 15 year old by accident, when they were searching for a missing dog.

Safety officer Ross Macleod says: "When people panic they can try and scramble up cliffs to escape or try and swim back when they're not that confident. The main message is please try and be aware before you go for a walk along the beach, check the tide times before you set off and try and make sure someone knows where you are".

The RNLI has been called out to deal with five rescues in the last 24 hours, including at St Agnes, Looe and Newquay.

There a teenager had been injured tombstoning.

Ross Macleod has this warning for anyone wanting to try it: "This is the practice of jumping from high places into the water, so cliffs, piers rocks etc. Of course, you don't know necessarily what depth the water is and there can be strong currents at the base of cliffs that can sweep you away".
