Two people stranded on cut off beach rescued by lifeboat

The man and woman had walked six miles along the beach.

Two people have been rescued by lifeboat after they were stranded on a beach which is cut off at high tide.

The man and woman walked six miles along Lossiemouth Beach in Moray before realising they could not get back because the bridge over the river separating the beach from the town of Lossiemouth was shut.

Buckie RNLI lifeboat rescued the pair after they called the coastguard for help at around 8.05pm on Wednesday.

Coastguard teams from Buckie and Burghead were also sent to the scene to help.

The bridge was closed in July last year due to safety concerns.
