Coastguards warning over Tower of Refuge walks

Coastguards in the Island capital are warning people about the dangers posed by walking out the Tower of Refuge.

It comes after teams in Douglas were called out at 8.35pm on Wednesday as a precaution after Marine Operations Officers spotted a group making their way out to the landmark.

However, crews were stood down after the group had turned back due to the rapidly incoming tide and knowing they were at risk of being cut off.

The individuals were then located on the Douglas Promenade Walkway and officers told them of the potential dangers and advised them of when it would be safe to do so.

Since then, coastguards have taken to social media to remind residents to never head out the tower once the tide has turned.
