  • Four people trapped by incoming tides on Cleethorpes beach


Four people were rescued by Royal National Lifeboat Institution after becoming trapped by incoming tides on Cleethorpes beach.

On Wednesday 8th September 2021 at 4.23pm Cleethorpes Coastguard station were made aware that four people were trapped on a sandbank behind Cleethorpes Pier.

The four people were approx. 700 metres off shore but Cleethorpes Coastguard were unable to reach them. This resulted in the Royal National Lifeboat Institution being called into action.

RNLI Cleethorpes launched a rescue operation and reached the group shortly before the sandbank was completely covered by the incoming tide.

The four people were unaware of how fast the tide comes in on Cleethorpes Beach.

RNLI Cleethorpes said: “On Wednesday afternoon, we were called out to rescue four people who had been trapped by the incoming tide on the sandbank behind Cleethorpes Pier.

“We took them to safety on the main beach and handed over to Cleethorpes Coastguard and Cleethorpes Beach Safety

“If you’re exploring our beach, be aware of tide times and come back off the banks at least four hours before high tide to avoid the risk of being trapped yourself.”
