Newquay RNLI volunteers called to five people reported trapped by the tide
Newquay (Cornwall) lifeboat volunteers called to five people reported trapped by the tide at Bedruthan Steps. Fortunately, when the lifeboat crew were three-quarters of the way to the scene, it was reported that all five people had been safely accounted for and the RNLI crew were able to return to Newquay Harbour within half-an-hour of launching.
