VEHICLE AND OCCUPANTS CUT OFF ON HOLY ISLAND CAUSEWAY

Seahouses RNLI Inshore Lifeboat was requested to launch by UK Coastguard at 7.06am on Wednesday 10 April 2019, to go to the assistance of two persons reported to be wet and cold, sitting on the roof of a car cut off by the tide on Holy Island Causeway.


The Inshore Lifeboat was quickly on scene and the two persons were brought ashore on a tractor. The occupants were later interviewed by the police.


Safe Crossing times for today were until 4:40hr this morning and after 09:45hr. High tide at Holy Island was 06:35, so these persons were attempting to cross the causeway only half an hour after high tide !
