MAN AND WOMAN RESCUED BY LIFEBOAT
At 15.06 pm, Forth Coastguard received a 999 call from a man reporting that he and a woman were cut off by the tide at Crammond Island.
They reported that they were others on the island, but the others had managed to get ashore.
Forth Coastguard called out the South Queensferry Coastguard rescue team and requested the launch of the South Queensferry RNLI inshore lifeboat.
The lifeboat recovered them from the island and landed them ashore.
Chris Bolam, Watch Manager, Forth Coastguard said:
The public are advised to check tide times and to ensure that they get back from the island before the tide floods.
