Coastguards and RNLI volunteers had to rescue more than 20 people after they became stranded on Cramond island in Edinburgh.

The alarm was raised at about 13:10 on Saturday.

Coastguards worked alongside RNLI Queensferry Lifeboat to lead the group safely ashore.

A HM Coastguard spokesman said: "Please always check the tide times before crossing, ensuring that you have sufficient time to return."
