Cross bay walkers had to be offered safety advice after a call that they were trapped on the sands at Morecambe.

The coastguard was called at 12.24pm on Sunday, August 23, after reports that people had been cut off by the tide.

Morecambe Coastguard and Knott End Coastguard went to the scene at Hest Bank and found people going onto the sandbanks because they believed they were being cut off by the tide.

It turned out to be a false alarm and the group who were on an organised walk, were given safety advice before crews left the scene.
