More than 30 schoolchildren have been rescued by helicopter and lifeboats from a Kent beach after becoming trapped by the rising tide.
The hiking party - which included two adults - were plucked to safety after straying from a coastal path between Dover Harbour and St Margaret's Bay.
The youngsters used mobile phones as distress beacons. Two hours later they would have been swimming for their lives.
In her report Sarah Saunders spoke to Matt Ivatt of the Dover coastguard, Billy Hollis of the Dover RNLI and resident Jean Smith. Video footage and still provided by @kernowsailing and Stuart Brock Photography.
