Watch: Stranded on the rocks

The volunteer crew at Anstruther RNLI launched to rescue a boy stranded on a rock, trapped by the rising tide.

Watch the crew power along the coast, and scale the rock to reach the youngster, in the video below:

It was Crew Member Euan Hoggan who climbed up to help the boy. He says: 'The young man was stranded on the rock for a considerable amount of time before the alarm was raised. We urge anyone in difficulty around the coast to dial 999 and ask for the Coastguard.'
