Newquay paddle boarders rescued from strong currents

RNLI Newquay The RNLI said all three of those rescued were inexperienced water users

Three paddle boarders were rescued after getting into difficulties off Tolcarne Beach near Newquay.

The three, all in their late 20s, got caught out by strong currents and winds at about 16:00 BST on Saturday.

RNLI lifeguards from Towan Beach reached one woman and two men were brought ashore by lifeguards from Lusty Glaze beach.

The RNLI said all three were inexperienced water users and were unaware of the strong currents.

Wes Roux, RNLI senior lifeguard, said: "I would remind people to always come and ask the lifeguards for advice if they're not sure of the local conditions and how they might affect them. "
