A young brother and sister were rescued by RNLI lifeguards on Saturday after they got into difficulty in the sea at Mablethorpe. The children were playing when they were spotted drifting towards an outfall pipe where there is often a rip current running which can be dangerous for swimmers.
When lifeguards reached the 9-year-old boy and 7-year-old girl, the boy was struggling and starting to go under the water.
Both children, who could not swim, were taken back to the safety of the lifeguard unit on the beach to recover and to be reunited with their parents.
