Rescue call out for two kayakers

Tynemouth Volunteer Life Brigade was called out at 2.10pm on December 22 after reports of two kayakers struggling in the heavy seas at the mouth of the Tyne.

When members turned up, they found the kayakers were part of a large party from a local club, all wearing lifejackets, who paddled ashore at Tynemouth Long Sands without any further incident.
