Volunteers launched onboard the D Class inshore lifeboat just before 4.30pm on Saturday, June 26, and quickly located the three teenagers with assistance from Sunderland Port Patrol and the Sunderland Coastguard Rescue Team.

The boys were transferred from the small beach to the Patrol Vessel which then transported them to Sunderland Marina while the RNLI crew recovered their mountain bikes.
