Reports of two cocklers on a sandbank off Moreton shore

Hoylake Hovercraft was tasked by UK Coastguard to investigate after a group of cocklers had come ashore off Moreton shore. It appeared that two of the group had remained out on the sandbank and there was concern for their safety as the tide was flooding. After arriving on scene, the hovercraft escorted the cocklers ashore safely.‬
