The local Coastguard team and RNLI Lifeboat crew were called out to their 1,203 rescue of the year in the early hours of this morning to rescue a couple from Cramond Island.

The South Queensferry volunteer teams were alerted at 2.10am after the pair were cut off by the tide.

The RNLI Lifeboat crew quickly found them on the Island and took them ashore.

A Coastguard spokesperson said “The couple did the correct thing, they stayed on the Island and contacted the Coastguard. On scene, they made visual contact with ourselves using the torch on their mobile phones.

“This then made it easier for the Lifeboat to locate the casualties. The Lifeboat safely took them ashore and with no medical treatment required all assets were stood down.”

In a coastal emergency dial 999 and ask for the Coastguard.
