Four people and a dog brought to safety by cliff specialist team at Mappleton Beach

Four people and their dog have been rescued after getting cut off on Mappleton Beach, near Hornsea.

Bridlington, Hornsea and Withernsea Coastguard Rescue Teams were all sent along with the Hornsea Independent Rescue Boat.

Coastguards carried out a cliff rescue using specialist technicians and brought all four and their dog to safety.
Jordan Grebby, from HM Coastguard said: “It’s a reminder that however well you might know an area, the tides really can catch you out when you least expect it.
“Thankfully these people did exactly the right thing and called 999 and asked for the Coastguard. We had our teams there very quickly and used our expertise in cliff rescue to bring all of them to safety.
“For anyone going out this weekend, keep a watchful eye on the tide while you’re on the beach, remember to leave plenty to time to get back and make sure you’ve got a well-charged mobile phone to call us if the worst happens.”
