ALB & ILB
Request from Aberdeen Coastguard to assist two people stuck on the cliff above the 'chain walk' near Elie and cut off by the tide.
Both boats launched, ILB arrived on scene first, the crew could not get up to them, but could speak and confirm that they were stuck, but OK and stable.
ALB arrived and liaised with the Coastguard shore team at the top who could not actually see the casualties, the Coastguards descended on ropes and lowered the casualties one at a time to the ILB below.
ILB transferred them to the ALB where they were given hot drinks and blankets. The casualties were safely returned to Elie harbour, no further assistance was required.
The Coastguard then took them back to their car.
