The BBC reports that Jersey Fire and Rescue's inshore rescue boat was called in and the woman was then taken from the rocks back to St Helier in an RNLI lifeboat.

According to ITV News, a spokesman for Jersey Fire and Rescue is now warning others against the quickly-changing tide

He said: "This incident highlights the importance of knowing the tide times and remaining vigilant when visiting coastal areas as the tides in Jersey turn very quickly and have historically caught many people out."

La Corbiere lies on the south western corner of Jersey and is a popular area with tourists.
