Falmouth Coastguard has issued this statement:
– Coastguard Watch Officer Richard Williams
We have spring tides at the moment that come in faster and further than usual. For this reason people out and about enjoying the Cornish coastline need to be especially careful to plan their trip.
Always check the weather and tide timetable before you set out on your walk and wear appropriate clothing for the unseasonably cold weather. If you do get cut off call 999 Coastguard.
Falmouth Coastguard is warning people to beware of incoming tides. Six people were cut off on Cornish beaches in two incidents on Saturday night. They happened at Zacry's Island near Newquay, and Gooden Heane Cove at Portreath.
