A man and a woman were rescued from the sands at Greenodd.

Ulverston Inshore Rescue were called into action at 5pm yesterday, September 1, and quickly mobilised an all terrain vehicle and a rapid response quad bike.

It is believed the couple, who were walking their dog, were nearly trapped by the oncoming tide.

Nobody was injured.

Bruce Chattaway, Station Commander at Ulverston Inshore Rescue, said: "We urge people to take care on the sands and be aware of the tide - it comes in very quickly."
