Our local rag reported that over the Bank Holiday weekend quite a few people got cut off by the tide.
Mumbles and Worms Head are always the 2 main places.
In one case a woman in high heels - fishnets and a miniskirt had to be recued along with her friends.
In all the cases reported the people called for help first via mobile phone.
What I would like to know is why the hell didn't the coastguard give them a bollocking and tell them to stay put until the morning? A freezing cold night on an island would teach them a valuable lesson and save the RNLI money!!!
"Three Portuguese tourists and a man from Monmouthsire had to call for help after realising they were stuck on the island and were in danger of drowning. One of the group was able to raise the alarm on a mobile phone."
In danger of drowning??? Sea levels would have to rise about 100' for them to drown on that island!!!
