Rhyl RNLI crew rescue nine from sandbank

Nine people have been rescued after getting cut off by an incoming tide at Rhyl.

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.
