Two teenagers were rescued after getting into difficulty off the coast at Blyth.

Blyth’s RNLI inshore lifeboat were called out at 5.15pm on Friday, July 18, after two teenagers were seen entering the water and appearing to get into difficulty.

When the lifeboat, with two volunteer crew on-board, arrived the two casualties were now out of the water and on the beach but required medical attention.

The lifeboat was beached and one casualty was given oxygen and with the help of Blyth coastguard team was taken to a waiting ambulance on a stretcher. The other casualty was able to walk up the beach.
