WALKERS TRAPPED BY TIDE AT HOLY ISLAND.

Holy Island Causeway has sanctuaries above high tide level

Holy Island Causeway has large warning signs in addition to local tide tables being available – if in doubt ask the locals because they know the dangers

When you call for help Seahouses Libeboat and its flank stations will respond together with the Coast Guard, even in very bad conditions at risk to their own lives

The Holy Island Causeway regularly sees walkers and vehicles stranded by the tide even though there are tide tables and large warning signs. Please make sure this Summer that you check tide times before using any tidal causeway. If you see yourself in danger please make for the nearest sanctuary, if one is provided, and call for help – STAY SAFE  THIS SUMMER……. SARN Ed.

At 12:15hr on Tuesday 30 July 2019, 6 walkers were trying to cross the  Pilgrims Way footpath across the sands at Holy Island, but found themselves trapped by the rising tide. With water to their chests, they called 999 and requested help.
