Lifeboat crews have been called out again to help walkers trapped by rising tides on West Norfolk's coastline

Lifeboat crews had to be scrambled yesterday afternoon following reports that a group of nine people had been cut off by the tide on the West Norfolk coast.

Coastguard officials were alerted to the party at Scolt Head Island, off Brancaster, shortly after 5pm on Tuesday.

Although the Hunstanton lifeboat crew was told all the party had made it back to shore safely before they arrived, officials say they then found another group on the island and warned them to get back to safety as the tide was turning.

The incident is the latest in a string of rescues carried out in the area in recent days, prompting pleas for visitors to be cautious by the sea this summer.
