Ramsey RNLI rescue person cut off by tide
Ramsey RNLI volunteer crew were paged by HM Coastguard at 10.41am this morning (Friday 21 July 2023) to the aid of a person who had been cut off by the tide east of Port Lewaigue.
The lifeboat arrived back at Ramsey at 11.15am and was recovered, washed down and made ready for service.
Mark Kenyon, Coxswain of Ramsey RNLI, said: 'We would strongly advise people to always check tide times and heights and to keep a look-out for incoming tides. Always carry a means of calling for help and if you see someone in danger, call 999 and ask for the coastguard.'
