Four people had to take refuge after their vehicles got stuck on Holy Island's tidal causeway yesterday.

Two vehicles, each with two persons on-board, had become cut off by the tide.

Humber Coastguard received a telephone call at 2.22pm from an occupant in one of the vehicles.

The four were able to make their way to the causeway refuge box until the tide receded, with coastguard officers ensuring their safety.
