SIX people - including a two-year-old girl - had to be rescued by a lifeboat at Cramond today after they were trapped by the incoming tide.
Lifeboats were dispatched to Cramond Causeway from the RNLI stations at South Queensferry and Kinghorn, Fife to rescue the party after the alert went up at around 11.55am.
Three women and two men, along with the toddler and two dogs, were saved by the lifeboat crews.
A helicopter, which was in the area for training, was also dispatched to the scene but turned back after the rescue was completed.
An RNLI spokesman said: “They were trapped as the tide was flooding. They were taken to Cramond Island before being returned to shore.”
