Hide and seek girl in Aberaeron beach rescue

A nine-year-old girl has been taken to hospital after she became stuck among sea defence boulders while playing hide and seek.

The incoming tide saw waves crashing against the rocks during what the RNLI said was a dramatic rescue at Aberaeron, Ceredigion.

Lifeboat crewman Tom Evans, 17, who was on his first rescue, had to submerge himself in the water to free Eira by cutting her wellies.

She was taken to hospital as a precaution.
