Incredible footage shows Uber driver being rescued from rising tide on Holy Island crossing

Updated: 

An aerial photographer managed to catch the moment an Uber car was caught by the rising tide on a causeway off the coast of Northumberland.

The driver and passengers had been attempting to leave Holy Island, when the car was trapped by the rising tide either side of the causeway's crossing. Fortunately for the driver and his passengers, they were able to reach a raised refuge before being rescued by boat.

The images were captured by a drone pilot, Mark Bradshaw, who had been intending to film historic Lindisfarne Castle, which is on Holy Island.
