Ramsgate RNLI rescue woman cut off by tide

Ramsgate RNLI

Ramsgate RNLI came to the aid of a woman cut off by the tide yesterday (August 16).

Ramsgate’s Atlantic 85 inshore lifeboat ‘Claire and David Delves’ was launched at 2.20pm at the request of HM Coastguard following a report of a person cut off by the incoming tide between Ramsgate and Broadstairs.

The woman was found at the foot of cliffs below the George VI Park area in Ramsgate where she was assisted aboard the lifeboat by the volunteer crew and safely taken to the lifeboat station in Ramsgate Harbour.

The woman  was uninjured but Coxswain Ian Cannon said: “This could easily have had a very different outcome, so please can we ask anyone out enjoying our lovely shoreline to take care, check the local tides before setting off and always carry a means of communication with you.”
