FIVE people were in danger of getting cut off by the tide in Rhyl over the weekend.

This was at Sunday, July 19 ON Rhyl beach at about 7pm.

Rhyl Coastguard Rescue Team posted on Facebook: "Our colleagues from RNLI Rhyl were put into immediate readiness.

"On scene, persons safely ashore and safety advice given by the Rhyl Coastguard Rescue Team."

Ian Olson, station officer, said: "When visiting the beach, always make sure you aware of the local tide times. When the tide is at low water, over the next few hours the tide will start to flood back in towards the beach.

"The public should keep aware of their surroundings, and watch out for gulleys and sand banks that may fill with water behind them, and cut them off from the beach."

Anyone who sees anyone in dangers of being cut off by an incoming tide, telephone 999 and ask for the Coastguard.
