Man and teenagers rescued off Shoebury coast
8:11am Tuesday 24th July 2012 in Southend
A MAN and two teenagers had to be rescued from the sea after being cut off by the tide.
The 48-year-old male had gone out with the teenage boys to Mulberry Harbour, which is about a mile off the coast of Shoebury, before becoming stranded just before 11.30am on Monday.
The Southend RNLI hovercraft crew were dispatched to retrieve the group after the coastguard spotted them.
After being brought back to the shore, they were given safety advice.
