A WOMAN and her parents cut off by the tide on Monday lunchtime were rescued by the Exmouth inshore lifeboat crew.

The family was visiting family in the town, had decided to go for a walk along Exmouth beach, but got cut off by the incoming tide at Rodney Point after not realising the Eastern cliff top steps had been removed.

The inshore lifeboat, crewed by Andy Smith, David Preece and Ian Taylor, returned the family to shore where they were met by Exmouth coastguards.
