Why must stupid people put other people's lives at risk - they should know when the tide is coming in.

It's not the RNLI's JOB. They are volunteers risking their lives for the morons who are not bright enough to know that the sea comes in and out twice per day.

As to the comment that the photo is from the demo. Duh! yeah! - stock photos are used since rescues are rarely filmed or photographed live.

Do you know the tide times I doubt it. Also they were cut off by the tide which comes in quickly on this section of shore being the flood plain of the Thames estuary. Its' also why the RNLI have a hovercraft

Well I have to say that I always know the tide tables whenever I go near tidal estuaries particularly to walk. In addition, everyone should know about spring and neap tides.......... and that is the point of knowing these things because yes, of course, it comes in quickly on a practically flat estuary that doesn't need much height of tide if the mud is at the same level. On the other hand a steep rising shingle beach gives you lots of warning.

It is very easy to find tide tables for the area you are in(don't forget to add an hour to GMT during the summer, another classic grockle mistake.) You can even find up to date charts of the estuary on the internet showing every sandbank and gulley so you don't get trapped.

If you are taking kids with you it is your responsibility to be safe. Of course, it was a darn sight easier before the incompetent Southend Council scrapped the Foreshore Inspector (Times of tides on the hut wall) and the Alec White patrol boat (and at a seaside resort of all places).

Even less excuse if you live here.
