Video shows Wirral RNLI team abandoning remembrance Sunday service to rescue two people cut off by tide

Video footage captured a Wirral RNLI team abandoning a remembrance Sunday service to dash to a rescue.

The West Kirby RNLI team were attending a service at the West Kirby Cenotaph, but were forced to leave when a call came in.

Two dog walkers were trapped on middle island after being cut off by the tide and were at risk of hypothermia.

Dave Henshaw, Lifeboat Operations Manager, said: “Yet again a misunderstanding on reading the tides, so easy as it is a complicated subject but just remember danger = three hours either side of high water.”
