Girls rescued from Whitby cliffs by helicopter

Two teenage girls have been rescued by a coastguard helicopter after getting cut off by an incoming tide on a beach.

The teenagers telephoned 999 at around 17:15 BST, on Thursday, from Whitby beach, North Yorkshire.

A coastguard officer waded to the girls before the girls were winched onboard the helicopter and taken to a nearby landing site.

The pair did not need medical attention, said the coastguard.
