Members of the public attempted to rescue the cat as the tide coming in before the Coastguard arrived near midnight.

Once on scene, the team liaised with those who had been trying to rescue the cat to ensure everyone was safe.

There was no sign of the cat and with everyone off the rocks and safe, the team were able to stand down.

The Coastguard said: “The tide will not cover the rocks where the cat was reported to be so hopefully it will make its own way to safety and will be reunited with its owner.

“If you see someone in trouble on the coast, dial 999 and ask for the Coastguard”.
