Two people and three dogs were rescued after they were cut off by an incoming tide.

Wells RNLI were called out by HM Coastguard after the group became trapped at Wells-next-the-Sea on Saturday afternoon.

The lifeboat was launched at 3.55pm and the crew located them just after 4pm before taking them back to the beach outside the boathouse but no medical treatment was needed.

After the incident on Saturday, Wells RNLI posted the tide times for March and warned people of the dangers of the incoming tide.

The statement said: "Our beach goes out a long way which is great for walking and enjoying our coastline; however, there is a real danger of being cut off by the incoming tide. 

"By being aware of the tide times and having the knowledge that you must be back on the main part of the beach where the sand is soft and dry at least four hours before high tide, you can help yourself and your family remain safe.

"If you do find yourself caught out by the tide, or see someone else in danger of being cut off, please call 999 and ask for the Coastguard."
