Two young men were rescued from Sully Island by Penarth’s D Class lifeboat Connie Dains this afternoon  after they had been cut off by the rising tide and were unable to reach the shore.

Both donned RNLI Mae West type life jackets  for their trip across the sound to the mainland in brilliant sunshine.

Sully Island becomes a magnet for tourists and holidaymakers in warm weather which, this afternoon, reached a balmy 24 degrees centigrade .

Penarth Lifeboat says “We’d urge everyone to take care around the coast during this unseasonably hot weather as particularly high tides will affect our area over the next week”

    I notice the two young men look to me of Middle eastern extraction. Lovely smiles for the camera like its an adventure the 6 men that drowned in Kent where also non UK nationals. Maybe after brexit the uk bother force does a basic water safety course.

    R.N.L.I workers are brilliant but on a hot day what danger were the men in on the island-eventually the tide will go out and they can walk back to shore.
