Yet more safety warnings have been issued to motorists using the Holy Island causeway as, once again, a driver had to be winched to safety.
A major rescue operation was launched yesterday when the man became stranded on the flooded causeway - in the first incident of its kind this year.
The man, believed to be in his 40s, was stuck on the bonnet of his car before the RAF helicopter hauled him to safety.
Rescuers from the Holy Island Coastguard said the tide was fast-approaching and they had around 20 minutes to rescue the man.
Last night Ryan Douglas, who took part in the rescue, encouraged members of the public to check the tide times before making their way across the causeway.
He said: “The man was distressed and in shock when we arrived. Within 20 minutes the car would have been submerged.”
The coastguard were called to the incident at around 2.30pm yesterday.
One rescuer was about to get into the water but was called back when the RAF Rescue Helicopter arrived.
The motorist was then taken back to Holy Island.
Yesterday crews also rescued two people who had been cut off by the tide near to St Cuthbert’s Island.
One coastguard officer got into the water just after 12.10pm before the lifeboat arrived on the scene.
