Uzma Khan wants everyone to know about the dangers of being cut off by the tide
‘I didn’t hear the lifeboat – I didn’t hear anything at that stage. I was drowning.’
British and Irish waters are dangerously unpredictable so it can be surprisingly easy to get cut off by the tide.

In her own words, 28-year-old Uzma Khan recalls the day she almost drowned – and how, as captured on video, Blackpool lifeboat volunteers saved her life.
