8 people have been rescued from a West Wales beauty spot after becoming stranded by the incoming tide.

The Horton and Port Eynon lifeboat was launched to rescue them from Worm's Head yesterday afternoon.

They were ferried back in several trips by the RNLI.

‘I would remind people that when walking out to Worms Head to check the times of the tide and remember that the causeway leading from the mainland to Worms Head is only open for 2 ½ hours either side of low tide’.

– Jeff Payne the Deputy Launching Authority for the Horton and Port Eynon Station
