Angle RNLI lifeboat in 'person in water' alert
Angle RNLI’s all weather lifeboat was launched in the early hours of Tuesday (June 21) to search for a possible person in the water off Hobbs Point, Pembroke Dock, in the Milford Haven Waterway.
The Tamar class lifeboat Mark Mason was launched at 12.31am and was on the scene in 14 minutes.
The lifeboat’s Y Boat was also deployed and an area between the Pembroke Dock ferry terminal and the Cleddau Bridge was searched extensively, assisted by a Milford Haven Port Authority pilot vessel and two tugs.
With no sightings and no further information, the search was cancelled and the lifeboat returned to her station, where she was rehoused at 2.15am.
