RNLI and Coastguard tasked to east Antrim swimmers

Portmuck and Larne Coastguard teams were tasked yesterday evening (Wednesday) after receiving a report of two swimmers missing north of Portmuck.

Both Larne RNLI lifeboats also attended the incident.

The swimmers, who had been caught in a rip tide, were able to make their way to the shore safely.

A spokesperson for Portmuck Coastguard said: “Both swimmers were caught in a rip tide and had swam ashore. They were then able to make their own way back across the rocks to the harbour car park.
