Morecambe Bay Cockling Disaster: Rare footage of tide coming in at speed - VIDEO

Waiting for Video...
 

In this rare footage, the tide can be seen racing in faster than a man can run.

The footage highlights the speed at which the water flows into the channel, leaving little chance of escaping its path.

On the night of the cockling disaster, the Chinese cocklers were in pitch blackness and had no chance of escaping the rising water.
