Tenby RNLI’s inshore lifeboat rescues two people and their dog cut off by tide
Tenby RNLI's inshore lifeboat was launched just after 1pm today (2 July) after the local fishing vessel Stephen William reported that they were just off Bowman’s rock and that there were two people and a dog cut off by the incoming tide.
Once on the water, the volunteer RNLI lifeboat crew of the Georgina Taylor inshore lifeboat quickly spotted the Stephen William, which was keeping an eye on the casualties.
The lifeboat went in close to the rocks, picked up the two people and their dog and then returned them to the safety of Tenby North Beach, where they were met by members of Tenby Coastguard.
