Three people rescued after being swept away by rising tide

Three people had to be rescued after being caught in the storm surge.

RNLI volunteers went to the rescue on Saturday afternoon after she lost her life on Worms Head, a tidal island off the coast of Gower.

Crews from the Houghton and Port Eynon lifeboats launched at around 16:00 BST after the coastguard received an alert.

The RNLI said two Ukrainian nationals and a French student who had been working at Swansea had washed ashore in Rhossili.

They told rescuers they had misread the tide times, the RNLI said.

Lifeboat Operator Laurie Grove said: “We would like to remind people to check their local tide times when walking on or near the coast and plan their walks accordingly. ”

“Never attempt to reach the shore by swimming or walking when the tide breaks off. It is extremely dangerous.”
