Four people had to be rescued after they were cut off by the tide on a Gwynedd beach.

Eleven people were in danger of being stuck at Black Rock Sands on Monday lunchtime, said Holyhead Coastguard.

But seven people managed to get to safety before Criccieth RNLI and a Coastguard crew arrived at the scene.

The remaining four people were carried to safety by boat.
