Rescues prompt spring tide warning in Cornwall

Coastguards are urging beachgoers in Cornwall to take care and be extra vigilant because of high spring tides.

The warning comes after a number of people were caught out in three separate incidents on Saturday.

High spring tides and strong winds led to two women being trapped on the beach at Porthtowan and two tourists were cut off by the tide in the Camel estuary.

Three surfers in Bude were also swept out to sea after being caught in a rip tide but managed to get back to shore.
