A volunteer lifeboat team was called to an unusual rescue when a nine-year-old girl became trapped between huge rocks on a beach in Wales.
The Royal National Lifeboat Institution (RNLI) team called out at 5pm on Thursday after the girl got into difficulty when she became trapped in the sea defences on the beach at Aberaeron.
With the tide beginning to rise, 17-year-old first-time volunteer Tom Evans crawled in between the rocks and helped free the girl by cutting her out of her wellington boots.
Once out of her boots, the team was able to lift the girl to safety.
RNLI mechanic Ben Billingham said it was a strange first call-out for Tom's, who he said had done a "really great job".
