A swimmer was rescued from the sea in treacherous conditions, prompting the RNLI to issue a serious warning.
The man had got into difficulties and was in distress at high tide in St Ouen’s Bay in Jersey on Sunday at around 9.15pm.
Coastguard Watch Officer, Ford Ramsden, said: “This was a difficult rescue, in the dark, at high tide, with rough sea conditions and waves breaking against the sea wall. We would advise islanders never to go swimming late in the evening, as this endangers not only the swimmers themselves, but also the emergency services who are called out to rescue them.”
