Six trapped by fast tides

Falmouth Coastguard is warning people to beware of fast, incoming tides after six people were trapped in two incidents in Cornwall on Saturday night (30 March).

Coastguard advice on Cornwall's dangerous tides

Falmouth Coastguard has issued this statement:

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.

– Coastguard Watch Officer Richard Williams
