Truant boys rescued off Holyhead rocks by RNLI lifeboat

Two boys playing truant had to face the head teacher after being taken back to school by coastguards who rescued them when they were caught out by the tide.

The pair, aged 12 and 13, became stuck on a rocky outcrop just off Holyhead harbour on Tuesday afternoon.

One rang 999 on his phone and the local RNLI inshore lifeboat crew was called.

A coastguard spokesman said the boys had done "the right thing" as they were cold and would have had to wait for the tide to go out before walking back.
