Coastguard rescue man and woman from Filey Brigg cliffs
A man and a woman, who were cut off by the tide this afternoon and climbed a cliff to escape, were rescued by two coastguard rescue teams.
The Coastguard received a 999 call at just before 4.00 pm this afternoon reporting that the two were stuck 100 ft up Filey Brigg. They had been walking along the beach and had been cut off by the tide so had climbed the cliff in a bid to escape, however, when they were about 100 ft up they became stuck. A passing member of the public saw their predicament and called 999. The Coastguard sent the Coastguard Rescue Teams from Filey and Bridlington, the Coastguard helicopter and the Filey RNLI Lifeboat was launched.
