Concern over two children in the sea off East Cowes led to the launch of Cowes RNLI lifeboat this evening.

But when the lifeboat arrived on the scene it was found that the children, aged eight and thirteen, had managed to reach the shore and were safe and well.

The lifeboat, which had launched just after 6 pm, was back at the station 12 minutes later.
