A RNLI Barry Dock lifeboat spokesman said: “Please don't attempt to return across the causeway if the tide is coming close to flooding the causeway.

“People have been swept away in the past.

“Please check tide times before visiting any coastal areas and if you do get into difficulty dial 999 and ask for the coastguard.”

The RNLI is in need of charitable donations.
