ALB & ILB
Both Lifeboats tasked by Aberdeen Coastguard to locate and aid 7 persons reported stuck in caves at Kincraig point between Elie & Shell Bay.
Once on scene the ILB located casualties and ascertained that they were in fact on the chain walk around the cliffs and were cut off by the tide but were not in any danger.
Contact was made and it was decided to take casualties off the chain-walk and back to Shell Bay. ALB stood by.
Both boats then returned to Anstruther harbour to re-house.
