Lough Swilly RNLI volunteers were in action yesterday evening following reports of two people who were thought to be cut off by the rising tide.
The people were reported at Carrickatemple, an outcrop of rocks in North Inishowen that is surrounded by shingle which is accessible at low tide.
When the RNLI crew arrived on scene, they found three people camping on the headland. It was determined that the campers were not in danger. However, the incident has prompted the RNLI crew to remind people to camp safely.
“Thankfully this ended well but it’s a timely reminder to be careful of the rising tide around the coast,” a spokesperson said.
The crew returned to Ned’s Point to refuel and make ready for service.
“If you’re in difficulty or see someone in or on the water in trouble please dial 999 or 112 and ask for the Coast Guard.”
