The RNLI was called to reports of two people and a dog cut off by the tide near Exmouth yesterday, Saturday 10 July.

Exmouth RNLI volunteer crew launched just before 6.30pm to assist the people who were between Orcombe Point and Sandy Bay, Exmouth.

The RNLI Inshore Lifeboat wad crewed by Helm, Roy Stott and volunteer crew James Searle and Ed Thomas and quickly made their way to the scene.
