Two teenage boys had to be rescued from a beach in south Wales after getting cut off by the rising tide.
The pair, aged 13 and 14, had been walking at Summerhouse Point near Llantwit Major when they got into difficulties and rang for help.
Swansea Coastguard called Porthcawl's RNLI lifeboat which found the boys and took them to Barry dock.
Watch manager David Jones warned people to check tidal conditions and the weather before setting out.
He said: "At sea changes in tidal streams could make conditions worse, particularly if the wind and tide are against each other. Tidal heights may hide underwater hazards.
"Consider whether you could become cut off by the incoming tide, and above all do not take risks."
