Five adults and four children were spotted in difficulty on a sandbank 200m (656ft) off Rhyl seafront on Friday at about 19:34 BST.

The adults were carrying the children in waist-deep water by the time Rhyl RNLI's inshore lifeboat crew reached the group.

All nine people were taken on board and returned to shore safely.
