Six children and three adults have been rescued by Lifeguards on Treyernon beach in north Cornwall.

The group was trapped by the incoming tide in a gully on Tuesday afternoon.

The RNLI said they were huddled together on a rocky platform above the gully which was quickly filling with water as the tide came in, and with a solid five foot swell washing though, they were in danger of being swept off the rocks.
