A holidaymaker has been rescued from rocks at La Corbiere in Jersey after being cut off by the tide.

Jersey Fire and Rescue's inshore rescue boat was called out on Monday afternoon after reports of a woman trapped near to the lighthouse.

The woman was taken from the rocks unharmed and back to St Helier in an RNLI lifeboat.

It is understood she had been taking photographs and had not noticed the tide surrounding her.
