Three young children have been rescued after being swept out to sea on the North Antrim coast.

The Coastguard said the boy and two girls were paddling in a small river when they lost their footing and got swept out into the sea.

All three children, aged 10, 11 and 12 were later rescued and were checked over by paramedics.

"They had started to panic and get stressed".

The coastguard, Red Bay and Portrush RNLI crews and paramedics were all called to the scene.

They were then taken to the Causeway Hospital in Coleraine, where they are suffering from hypothermia.

However, the casualties had already been recovered by a member of the public who helped bring them back to shore.

The coastguard urged people to be vigilant in the summer waters saying currents could be deceptive and the sea very unsafe.
