PUBLISHED: 18:57 11 July 2011
TWO 22-year-olds were rescued by the coastguard when they became stranded while on a walk this afternoon (Mon).
The tide came in and covered the footpath the females had taken to the area, off Brean Down.
The coastguard said it received a call from the ‘distressed’ women shortly before 5pm.
A team went out to them and took them safely to shore.
The sudden high tide had covered their route back to safety.
