Five teenagers had to be rescued from rocks by the RNLI after getting cut off by the tide in the Vale of Glamorgan.

The lifeboat was launched to pick up the three boys, aged 17, and two girls, aged 15, from Jackson's Bay, Barry at about 21:15 BST on Wednesday.

The group had become stranded on a rock formation known locally as Bull's Nose when the tide came in.

The RNLI advised people to always chose a beach manned by lifeguards and to swim between red and yellow flags.
