VIDEO: Woman trapped by rising tide off local coast ‘tried to wait it out but the water just kept coming up’

Video footage has been released of a woman, young son and two dogs being rescued from the coast of Fife.

Helmet camera footage shows Anstruther lifeboat rescuing a female, two-year-old Hamish and dogs Bert and Molly, who were cut off by the rising tide in the East Neuk town yesterday.

The woman, relieved to be rescued, tells crew: “I was trying to wait it out but the water just kept coming up.”

As the lifeboat takes her to shore, she jokes: “This is my highlight of the day.”
