EXMOUTH RNLI is praising a Good Samaritan who raised the alarm in a bid to prevent a potential danger.

Exmouth lifeboat operations manager Kevin Riley said a man walking on the beach last week called in at the lifeboat station after spotting a group of walkers attempting to wade through the rising tide at Orcombe Point.

Mr Riley said he welcomed the prompt actions of the man and invited the public to become the eyes and ears of the RNLI - urging them to call in at the station to raise the alarm.

Mr Riley said: "The guy took the time out to come and tell us there was a potential problem.
