Staff from a Sea Life aquarium had to be rescued from the sea after they were stranded by an incoming tide.

The group of four from Southend Sea Life Adventure Aquarium were out near the town's pier head taking samples when they were cut off on Thursday.

They ended up knee-deep in water and were unable to get back to shore.

A volunteer Hovercraft crew from the Southend RNLI brought them back to shore and gave them safety advice.
