RNLI volunteers in Newquay had a busy bank holiday Monday - having to attend two call-outs in just over hour.
A lifeboat was sent to help a man and his dog who had been swept by a rising tide on Whipsiderry Beach. They were rescued from a cave where they had scrambled to safety. The man was taken to hospital for a check up and this dog paid a visit to the vets.
A little over an hour later, a family of five have been rescued from rocks at a beach at Bedruthan Steps.
Two adults with three children, aged between nine and 14, were rescued by the Newquay lifeboat and taken to the town's harbour.
While on the call, the RNLI spotted another couple stranded on the rocks at Bedruthan Steps. They were airlifted by rescue helicopter from RNAS Culdrose.
